WE ARE ALL PILGRIMS

I was reflecting yesterday on Enya's song 'Pilgrim'. For those of us who are not familiar with the singer, Enya (Eithne Ní Bhraonáin)  was born in County Donegal, Ireland. She was raised a Catholic but, while holding on to her Catholicism, it is in a very loose kind of way.

There is a spiritual quality to Enya’s music which inspires her creativity. In this particular song she is questioning life and where it is leading her. We are all 'travelling' a road searching for real truth, not the 'fake' version. For thousands of years we have heard 'stories' about where truth lies but we must continue to search for it ourselves. Like Enya, each of us is a 'pilgrim' on that road.

"Pilgrim"

Pilgrim, how you journey on the road you choose
to find out why the winds die and where the stories go.
All days come from one day, that much you must know.
You cannot change what's over but only where you go.


One way leads to diamonds, one way leads to gold,
another leads you only to everything you're told.
In your heart you wonder which of these is true;
The road that leads to nowhere, the road that leads to you.


Will you find the answer in all you say and do?
Will you find the answer in you?
Each heart is a pilgrim, each one wants to know
the reason why the winds die and where the stories go.

Pilgrim, in your journey you may travel far,
for pilgrim it's a long way to find out who you are...
Pilgrim, it's a long way to find out who you are...
Pilgrim, it's a long way to find out who you are...
