Praying the Jesus Prayer

When you say the Jesus prayer (Our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God have mercy on me, a sinner), you should clear your mind of all thoughts both good and bad. You should especially avoid a false sense of humility and false sense of positive thoughts; just be attentive and feel the words of the prayer.

 

From the book “From the Ascetic and Hesycastic Athonite Tradition” Translated by Anna Pipinos and Elias Pipinos.
