A Holy Tabernacle in the Heart (from Life of the Future World)

Poet: Rabbi Abraham Abulafia

However,
     the breath
which is
     from the second one
is a
     holy
     tabernacle
in the heart.
One ascends

     to the sky
     to depict with Unifications
     the relationship
between everything that
     is difficult
     in this
     science of pronunciation.
