Not only does the shoe protect our feet but the shoe acts as a sartorial symbol in the waking world. Consider this story I want to share with you. This really is powerful and puts your dream into perspective.
Imagine that you wake up in prison for a crime you did not commit. Everywhere you look you could feel a threat. You would be scared at first, and soon realize that not all the prisoners are hostile, but that some are particularly interested in your safety.
Suppose that the prisoners you trusted completely threatened and yelled at you once. The prison will never again feel safe to you. To survive in prison, you must know the prison laws or learn them. Hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil. This law is told to you when you are given a set of shoes, from a cellmate. As you are so consumed with anxiety about your safety in prison that you forget to put on your shoes. These, however, are magic shoes that will enable you to walk out of the prison at any time. You meet other prisoners one day. You instantly feel more secure in their company because they seem to like you. They may claim to be experts on the laws of the country and will share their knowledge with you. This is combined with the insights you have gained by observing. Listening to the prisoners and what they say will help you to understand what you should do to keep yourself safe.

We sometimes consume ourselves with so many problems we just forget we can get up and leave. Walk away.
