This Italian word became a global byword because of the movie Eat, Pray, Love. In English, it means “cross over” or “Let’s cross over”.
In our lives, sometimes we just have to move forward and embrace new beginnings. Every day, something beautiful bursts forth. But we keep holding on to the past.
The term—well, its English counterpart—is also used to refer to ghosts who supposedly do not go into the next dimensions (depending on their religion, I reckon. :P) because of unfinished business here on earth. So they don’t “cross over” yet.
I’m at the stage where I want to pass through. But a huge part of me just wishes a huge and important part of my past crosses over with me.
If only throwing away the baggage of pride and misplaced tenacity is also that easy, the world would have been a better place. *sigh*
