Yes, while he is at rest - still - he is not shown to be passive, weak or at the mercy of his surroundings.

He is resting the body, while his mind works. He is preparing and aware.

I do like the touch of the string of pearls he holds. Rosary, prayer beads, worry beads. They give his body something to do, something to work with as he contemplates. I get the impression that stillness is not the natural state for this man, so he remains in the posture through great effort.
