Lightness vs weight

There are a few people in this world with who you just connect from the first time you meet. One of them recently gave me a present.

The book ‘The unbearable lightness of being‘ by Milan Kundera.

All I can say is that it’s one of the greatest books I’ve ever read. If you haven’t already, find it and read it. Page after page, it’s a constant food for thought.

I don’t have the time now, but in time I will add to this post favorites quotes from the book. I will say though my opinion on the dilemma of lightness vs weight. I believe that life is general should be viewed from the point of lightness – simply because life is fun and if you take it too seriously you’ll probably end up jumping of a building. However, because “the heavier the burden, the closer our lives come to the earth, the more real and truthful they become” for a few things (the really important ones) it is imperative to choose weight.

A song that came to mind while I was writing this post:
