"You must descend from your head to your heart.  At present your thoughts of God are in your head.  And God Himself is as it were, outside you, and so your prayer and other spiritual exercises remain exterior.  Whilst you are still in your head, thoughts will not easily be subdued but will always be whirling about, like snow in winter or clouds of mosquitoes in the summer." 

-- St. Theophan
