If you truly want to learn how to pray, take as an example and learn to imitate a good guitar player.
Such a person tilts the head slightly down and when he hits the strings listens carefully the outcome. Just as the strings are struck masterfully, the guitar emits the melody, and the guitarist is pleased with its sweetness.
You, like the guitarist, when you turn your attention towards the bottom of your heart, you will find easily what you are looking for. Because the soul that is completely overwhelmed by divine love, cannot see anything else.
St. Kallistos of Constantinople
