Question

Bury in sand, close behind doors

If it need be, get on all fours

The precious gift is yours alone

Very much like a dog and bone

Bring together, it's what it's for

Everyone knows it, no less no more

Though quite simple, it's everywhere

With this and that, 'tween here and there

Out there somewhere, it has to be

Open your eyes, what do you see

If nothing then, be on your way

Until it’s found, by you one day

Pay attention and listen here

The answer sought should be quite clear

All who know it remember when

Looking was like a cardinal sin

Lust?

I'm thinking of Steinback's descriptions of how sex is a thing hidden and taboo, and how that allowed Cathy to take advantage of it. Sex definitely fits the "bring together" and "cardinal sin" parts. Well, maybe not the "cardinal" part - I don't know what that means (though I've heard the phrase a lot) =P

Nope, but again, interesting thought processes. Though the riddle might be a little complicated, the answer is not.

Time capsule? Message in a bottle? Diary? Secret? Reunion?

Just wiki'd cardinal sin and saw that it's just another name for the 7 Deadly ones. I think the one that's most likely to fit the riddle is pride, considering the verse with "precious gift."

Maybe inspiration? It can be quite simple and deceptively "everywhere," because you can be inspired by anything.

The word "and"?

Humility? Fits a lot, opposite of vanity

I'm thinking it might have something to do with being silent, paying attention, following herd, not causing problems, conformity, or just good listening skills, or comprehension.

Spaces?

Bury in sand, close behind doors - AN + D

If it need be, get on all fours - B + A

The precious gift is yours alone

Very much like a dog and bone

With this and that, tween here and there - H

I've looked for hidden words via every nth letter or every nth letter in every word or line, and haven't found anything.

Some of your thoughts are definitely on the right track. This isn't however a POW or anything like that. The first part of your guess has something to do with it.
