BABA SO LOVED TO WALK
Mehera J. Irani
One day Baba took us for a morning walk. After perhaps half a mile we turned to the left and came across a cool, shady grove of lovely pine trees. They had very fine needles instead of leaves, and the ground was covered with these needles which were very soft to walk on. We followed Baba through the grove, and came to a beautiful beach. It was not a straight beach, but part of a lovely bay, so the waves broke very gently on the shore.
"How lovely it is," Baba said. He turned around, and Baba Himself looked so beautiful by the sea. We all gathered around Him to admire the view. He told us, "You can all do what you like ... talk together or walk or whatever."
Baba walked very, very fast and went far away, and we stood talking together until He returned half an hour later. Baba so loved to walk.
