To the Root // Hasta La Raíz

I challenge you to read over these song lyrics with this thought: it was argued in my *AaaaaaMAZING* Kairos retreat that this song could only refer to God’s love, considering how strong the love is described. What are your thoughts, readers? The lyrics are below… (song by Natalie Lafourcade)

I go on crossing rivers
roaming forests
loving the sun
Every day I go on pulling thorns
from the far depths of my inner heart
And at night I go on burning up dreams
to launder clean with sacred smoke

For each memory

When I write Your Name in the white sand, a backdrop of blue
When I look at the sky in the cruel form of a gray cloud
You come into view
In an afternoon I might climb a high hill
look at time gone by
You will know there’s no way I have forgotten

2015-04-18 07.28.24

I carry You within me, to the very root
and I may blossom, and You will be here
Though I hide myself behind the mountain
to come upon fields of sugar cane
There will be no chance, my Ray of Moonlight,
that You will leave (me)

2015-04-18 07.05.08

I think that every instant that I survive while I am walking
And every second of incertitude
every moment of my not knowing
Are exactly the key to the weave in that fabric
which I go carrying under my skin
So as to protect You
You continue, within me…

2015-04-18 07.30.43

I carry You within me, to the very root
and I may blossom, and You will be here
Though I hide myself behind the mountain
to come upon fields of sugar cane
There will be no chance, my Ray of Moonlight,
that You will leave (me).

(Original version, in Spanish):

Sigo cruzando ríos,
Andando selvas,
Amando el sol
Cada día sigo sacando espinas
De lo profundo del corazón
En la noche sigo encendiendo sueños
Para limpiar con el humo sagrado

cada recuerdo

2015-04-19 07.37.07

Cuando escribo tu nombre
En la arena blanca con fondo azul
Cuando miro el cielo en la forma cruel de una nube gris
Aparezcas tú

2015-04-19 07.31.24
Una tarde suba una alta loma
Mire el pasado
Sabrás que no te he olvidado

2015-04-19 07.34.25

Yo te llevo dentro, hasta la raíz
Y, por más que crezca, vas a estar aquí
Aunque yo me oculte tras la montaña
Y encuentre un campo lleno de caña
No habrá manera, mi rayo de luna
Que tú te vayas

2015-04-19 07.35.23

Pienso que cada instante sobrevivido al caminar
Y cada segundo de incertidumbre
Cada momento de no saber
Son la clave exacta de este tejido
Que ando cargando bajo la piel
Así te protejo
Aquí sigues dentro
2015-04-18 07.27.39
Yo te llevo dentro, hasta la raíz
Y, por más que crezca, vas a estar aquí
Aunque yo me oculte tras la montaña
Y encuentre un campo lleno de caña
No habrá manera, mi rayo de luna
Que tú te vayas

As the lyrics state, ‘I write your name in the sand.’ Though I didn’t write His name in the beach’s lovely sand, His name was written ALL over the beauty of the beach- every detail! He is good.
