A Walk in Ojai

While house-sitting in Ojai at my parents place, I really wanted to start getting physical! You know, a little something called exercise!

They have a pool, so I was doing some swimming and there are also some great walks near their place. Here is a little mix of photos from my walks. The best thing about walking, especially in beautiful places, is that it's good for your spirit and gives your soul a lift! Long story, but I have been needing that lately.

Every moment has its special message.
~Hazrat Inayat Khan

If we only only understood that every moment in life,
every day, every month, and every year,
has its particular blessing;
if we only knew life's opportunity!

~Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

As the light of the sun helps the plants to grow,
so the divine Spirit helps the soul towards its perfection.

~Hazrat Inayat Khan

When one praises the beauty of God,
one's soul is filled with bliss.

~Hazrat Inayat Khan

May your week be filled with beauty and blessing!

Beautiful words and photos. I've been walking around our neighborhood farther than usual the past couple of days. You are right about it giving your soul a lift. I feel so lighthearted by the time I turn around to head for home.

I do most of my creating, problem solving and meditating whilst walking...Love the landscape in your part of the world! It looks so warm and open and what better place to have access to a pool!
