Moving so near ground (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

reason

Here is my best explanation:

'ground' is the definition.

('reason' can be a synonym of 'ground')

'moving so near' is the subsidiary indication.

'moving' indicates anagramming the letters.

'so'+'near'='sonear'

'sonear' is an anagram of 'reason'.

(Other definitions for reason that I've seen before include "Mental power to justify an act", "Ability to think rationally", "Sanity and logic", "Sense", "Justification or motive", "Cause; mind's power", "Motive or right thinking", "Rational motive", "Think logically" and "Purpose".)
