The glimpse in its most elementary form does not come only to specially gifted persons. It belongs to the portrait of every human being as a natural and not a mysterious part of his life-experience. It is simply a part of the feeling for Nature, to whose system he belongs, and for the Sun which is Nature's supreme expression. The sun's glory, beauty, power, and benignity arouse reverence. Oriental faiths mostly recognized this and made prayers obligatory at dawn and twilight.
