Welcome to the forum and good luck with your search.
I can't really add to what everyone else has said with regards to practical advice for experiencing the faith. They are all right on the money as far as what next steps you should take. Orthodoxy must be experienced IN the liturgical life of the Church.
As far as your pride issues, I can relate as I have gone through that much myself, even on this board!
Mea culpa! It's very easy once you have come into the fulness of the truth and faith to act with pride towards anyone who has not the fortune or discernment God has given to you to make these steps. To combat it, you must first realize, as I said, that this knowledge and this faith are not entirely of your own making. ONce you realize that these are gifts from God, then it should be repugnant for you to act out with pride. I'm sure you know this. If you are worried about displaying pride, I would, however, counsel you not to lock yourself away for fear you may let the pride slip out. Saints are not made only in seclusion; we have saint makers around us all the day, our friends, parents, relatives, people we don't know, etc. Becoming like Christ and growing in the virtues requires us to stumble and fall. When ascending Golgotha it is impossible not to stumble and fall (Joseph the Hesychast). The important thing is that you get back up and try again. God doesn't require us to be perfect otherwise we'd all be screwed!
I would recommend that you read a short work by St. John Damascene (my patron saint), called On the Virtues and Vices
. You can find it in volume II of the four volume Philokalia which was translated by Bishop KALLISTOS. That may provide some helpful guides as to how to steer your journey away from pride.
Good luck with your journey and, again, welcome!
