The Temple of Laziness

I request an audience in the chamber, and I get informed it is my turn. Others may join me, or may be in the chamber already. I enter, make a request, and wait, head raised, staring at the icon above me. The icon moves and suddenly I feel light or heavy. The room is adorned with shiny objects, some reflecting my own image back to me while I stand and think. When I am ready, I exit the room. I have been moved by experience there.

Many perform rituals every day. Do they mean anything?
