I love the ethos around salah. It doesn't matter if you're black, white, yellow, green. Old, young, in between. When it's time to pray we all stand together, facing the same way, praying from the same Holy Book.
And as the sister from @untouchedbyfire rightly says, the steps are so simple. Alhamdulillah I had a wonderful teacher who taught me the salah. She stressed that when my head was touching the lowest ground, Allah was near and He could hear my words in the heavens. I didn't know how it worked exactly but I felt it. When I relaxed into that sujood (prostration) I found real peace. Not that fake inner peace you fool yourself into thinking you have until a calamity strikes. My heart had finally found it's resting place.
I've often wondered if those who were born into a Muslim family always had that feeling when they prayed salah or if it was something they too had to learn. It's just more proof that no matter where you're born, what religion you're presented first by your parents if Allah swt wishes to guide you He will.
May Allah swt always keep us on the siraatul-mustaqeem and lighten our paths on the Day of Judgement, Ameen! .............
