Lay on you bed as you read. Consider what life was like for this man on a mat. What is his perspective like?
What are his limitations?
Is it comfortable?
What kind of vision do his friends have?
How does their vision/dream affect them? Affect their friend?
Does the man on the mat seem to have the same dream as the friends or do you think he had become resolved to his place in life? Have you become resolved with your place in life?
What is your dream for yourself? For others?
Finish your time in silent prayer on your bed.
