    'riding through the ruts'

    Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality . Wake Up and Live!”

    What does the above quote mean? What do you mean by riding through the ruts?

    Do you know what a "rut" is in the context of a road surface?

    Re: 'riding through the ruts'

    A rut is a groove or furrow in a soft road, caused by wheels.But what it has got to do with life? Don't complicate mind.......... what do you mean by the entire quote?

    Re: 'riding through the ruts'

    Imagine that life is a long, smooth road, with no ruts. It would be an easy journey. However, along the road there are areas full of ruts, making those parts of the journey difficult, bumpy and sometimes painful.

    The rest of it is rather badly written. Where did you find this strange quote?

    Re: 'riding through the ruts'

    For me, the signs represent the complexity of paths and choices we have and the ruts are the bumps or problems, setbacks and inconveniences we have to put up with.
