(Recorded by Aliza Yehzkiel, ISBN: 965-90295-1-9)


  • Close your eyes and breathe out.
  • Go to the ocean, and swim to the horizon between the sky and the sea.
  • Cross to the other side of the horizon,
  • See and sense yourself walking on the water
  • Then cross back again.
  • Swim back to the shore backwards 
  • Take off all the Contradictions
  • and see them drowned into the sea.
  • Breathe out and open your eyes.
