“The fact is that the elemental sense of the Divine is not a matter of mystical realization or any kind of emotional or cerebral experience.
It is the simplest, most fundamental perception granted to all human beings, a certainty that there is a Creator, or some sort of greater reality, responsible for the world.
It is a recognition of the obvious, not an extraordinary vision of the hidden.”
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
