by Shemu'ab Tovah
The human body is always finite;
It is the spirit that is boundless.
Before he begins to pray,
A person should cast aside that which limits him
And enter the endless world of Nothing.
In prayer he should turn to God alone
And have no thoughts of himself at all.
Nothing but Go exists for him;
He himself has ceased to be.
The true redemption of man's soul can only happen
As he steps outside the body's limits.
