Weight or lightness 

The heaviest of burdens crushes us, we sink beneath it, it pins us to the ground .The heaviest of burdens is therefore simultaneously an image of life’s most intense fulfillment. The heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become. Conversely, the absolute absence of burden causes man to be lighter than air, to soar into heights, take leave of the earth and his earthly being, and become only half real, his movements as free as they are insignificant. What then shall we choose?Weight or Lightness?

    I choose weight, without something weighing you down one can never develop inner strength. Beautifully written that reflects the struggle of what people go through.

        I read a few posts by you. No doubt, all that I read was beautiful! But what I analysed was that they weren’t getting too many a admirers. That can be changed quite a bit if you were to Categorise your posts like most people commonly do under either Blogging, Writing, Writing & Blogging, Poem, Poetry, Fiction or Fiction & Poetry or under all the ones mentioned and more. What more is needed to do is add Tags to your posts. Tags play a very important role here, like they do all over the Internet. Tags are the key words that represent the topics covered or included in your posts. You can Categorise your posts and add Tags to them in the POST SETTINGS of the post you’re making. More so, you can edit your older posts by doing the same and setting the Publish time as IMMEDIATELY, which, on updating your post, will reissue it.
        To put up all in a simple way, (not repeating how-to-do part) consider you’ve written a poem on the happy things that hit you in life, you can add tags as Poem (primarily), Happy, Poetry, Life, Rhyme (if your poem consists any), Journey, etc. and Categorise it under Poem (primarily), Poetry, Fiction & Poetry, etc. Erm… Yeah, that’s almost all of it.
        Do try the above. Don’t hesitate in adding a lot many tags and categorising in a lot many topics! The more you do, the more places your posts appear! I hope this helps you ahead. I wish it does! Good luck to you! 🙂

        Thanks a lot! Actually I don’t have any experience about blogging and it’s really very very kind of you to point out where I was going wrong…only recently I have started using tags as I didn’t know of them before…Well I will definitely keep in mind your advice and thanks for appreciating my work. It really means a lot!
        Any sort of advice on my blogging is always welcome 🙂
