Are your own personal frailties, inflections, inflections of others, life and its nuianses slowing you down-self consciousness/awareness weighing on you-society dealing you bad luck, life erratic, an ill meaninglees wind manage your life that you have no say over, the pulsing and oscillating of electronics and contrivances controll your mood.. leave doldrums and humdrums of repetition, traffic and driving give you bone and muscle aches, vibrating jerking motors dominate your senses.... You amy noy be able tomove 1000 tons of gold at the bottom of the creek to put money in your walle or fix the plumbing by moving the weeping willow whose roots have gotten into it. Everyone has problems... the man at the party, the clerk at the atore, president or hood. A rolling moss gathers no stones. A suped up car is not an escape
A very self occupied self-indulgent man with
numereous but few consequential relationships can be said to have gathered little moss... or meaning. What could be said of a man who'd not join a club that have him as a mamber. He has not numereous contacts, might or might not be very self indulgent, might or might not have a lot of perssonal meaning/fulfillment, and might or might not have accumulated much moss, at best other persons and his own life not be superifcially connected.
All men have roots. Some have strong ties to them, some have weak ties. Mosses also have roots. Men are not stationary, plants. such as mosses are. A man height therefore depends on some ratio of his cconnections to his roots to the total area his feet had occupied, where he plants them, in his life journey. If he indulges in vegation. his head is likely to be lost in the trees- he cannot be tangled in superfulous vines.
In order to keep your head above the trees; walk lightly and carry a big stick-or you'll tread heavily on the stone lined shallows, if you indulge in the mosses in the deep.
A rolling stone accumulates no moss only if he doesn't join any group that'd have hime as a member. He can always tread lightly, carry a stick of any length if he lives always with uncertainty of the depth of the vines. Moses reached for the hot coal because it threatened the king and found a friend for life.
