Zohar 1:103b

Jewish Mysticism
Zohar commenting on Prov. 31- 23, “her husband is known in the gates” (noda‘ ba-she‘arim ba‘lah)-
This refers to the Holy One, blessed be He, who is known and comprehended according to what one imagines in one’s heart (lefum mah di-mesha‘er be-libbeih), each one according to what one can comprehend through the spirit of wisdom, and according to what one imagines in one’s heart, so [God] is known in one’s heart. Therefore, [He] is known in the gates, in these imaginings, but no one can comprehend and know Him as He is.

Translated by Elliot Wolfson in Through a Speculum that Shines- Vision and Imagination in Medieval Jewish Mysticism, Princeton- Princeton University Press, 1994.
