Zohar 2:2a

Jewish Mysticism
The enlightened (maskilim) are those who contemplate (mistakkele) the secret of Wisdom. “Will shine,” for they are illuminated and shine with the splendor of supernal wisdom. “Like the splendor,” the light and spark of the river that comes forth from Eden, and this is the hidden secret which is called the firmament, in which are found the stars, constellations, sun and moon and all the flames of light.

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