Searching for the Way Home

“The mockingbird wonders where he is from…

The heavens open and the answer is in his song,

One is the paths one has taken

love’s places,

the place where one has buried his navel.”

from Camino a Casa (The Path Home) – Alejandro Sanz

Upon the question “Where do we come from?” there are no clear responses.   We cannot affirm with certainty if we are what we believe, if we live, if we dream, if the soul is young or old.  The answers are in everything that is innate…the song of the mockingbird, the touch of the wind, the warmth of the sun, the whispers of the soul. We know we are the result of the paths we have chosen, the love we have lived, and the traces it left behind.  And we are all searching for the way home, that place only the soul recognizes…and everything leads us here.

“El cenzontle se pregunta de dónde es…

El cielo se abre y la respuesta está en su canto,

uno es los caminos recorridos

los lugares del amor,

el lugar donde ha enterrado su ombligo.”

de Camino a Casa – Alejandro Sanz

Ante la pregunta de dónde somos no hay respuestas claras.  No podemos afirmar con certeza si somos lo que creemos, si vivimos, si soñamos, si el alma es joven o vieja.  Las respuestas están en todo lo que es innato… el canto del cenzontle, el roce del viento, el calor del sol, los susurros del alma. Sabemos que somos el resultado de los caminos elegidos, el amor vivido, y los rastros que éste dejó atrás.  Y todos buscamos el camino a casa, aquél lugar que solo el alma reconoce…y todo nos conduce allá.
