It is important to look for the connection with God, because there is only Him. In prayer we open our hands upwards, inhale and receive a connection with the Superior. For a moment we become silent and allow our image to be fixed, as in a photograph; it is a flash, and then we exhale. The contact is established and the Divine will know what we are in need of.
This is the easiest way to find the right direction.
Prayer allows us to always be aware of where we are. It makes us stretch your arms; at that moment the universal energy enters us. If instead of opening our hands, we create a wish, it will be virtually impossible to connect with the Superior because every desire want to catch something.
It always brings with it the joy of being able to embrace the object of our desire, mixed, however, with the pain that comes from the awareness that what we embrace is always too small, and that in the next desire we want a little more. It is an endless and tasteless chain.
This is the nature of desire.
