Anything that stays in the same soil too long withers and eventually dies.  I think people are the same way.  If we stay too long in the same soil, we start to dry up inside.  Soon, there’s nothing left but the shell and even after a while, even THAT goes.  If we do the same things, in the same way, over and over, in time, we fall asleep in our own lives - until something happens to wake us up.  That’s when, like any living thing, you have to take yourself out of where you are and out yourself back where you should be, where you started off before you fell asleep.  You have to rotate back to fertile ground… to the soul that nourished you… back to the earth.
