text: fragment from Sefer Haot by Rabbi Avraham Abulafia

…Behold the name of your soul is "blood" and "ink" is the name of your spirit …
... And inside the heart the great war broke out between ink and blood, and the blood came from the spirit, and the ink came from the ashes. The ink won over the blood, and the Sabbath day prevailed over all the secular days....
... Because everything exists, existed and will exist,  everything has been created, is created and will be created by His Name; everything stands and will stand by all the days of his establishment...
... He rides a chariot of fire, and his mounts are the horses of spirit. His servants are speaking beings of flame...
…He is Life that transforms the sign of guilt into a sign of  acquittal, he revives with it the all the people of His mystery, those who knew His ways, praising the hidden path pof His wonders…
…And the one who meditates on the Unspeakable, permuted  Name, with the twelve tracks in six directions – which is great news in Yisrael – [that one] will find  satisfaction in it ...
