Il˙vatar's power or spirit of Creation, the "Holy Spirit", by which the Ainur and Eń were created.
Also called the FlameImperishable and the SecretFire.
The Sun was probably a symbol of the SecretFire, hence called the Flame of Anor, the power of Gandalf...
Therefore Il˙vatar gave to their vision Being, and set it amid the Void, and the Secret Fire was sent to burn at the heart of the World; and it was called Eń.
From: The Silmarillion
