Rolling stone is a symbol of a successful and happy person. The meaning of our life is to roll the stone joyfully. Sisyphus labor is a symbol of how the stone is rolled without pleasure, a symbol of the primacy of the goal before the process.
Sisyphus is a symbol of a dung beetle – the dust servant. The beetle pushes the dung and dust balls around forever, cherishes them and appreciates them. The beetle can’t even think that his ball is just dust and there is enough of it everywhere. The ball taken up the hill turns into ashes. Rest the ashes. The ashes hill king. The miserable dust master.
There is no humility in pride. Sisyphus, who rolls his stone up the mountain, is a proud man who cannot accept the impossible. He himself came up with the problem and he heroically decides to no avail. But in the absence of humility, there is a second side – intolerance. Proud people are impatient, they want everything at once. If there is no firmness of love in a proud man, he will quickly give up his work, unable to withstand difficulties and trials. That is, the proud either throws unfinished, or stubborn as a sheep in the impossible.
