The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Woe is me, that I have read the commandments,
   and have become learned in the Scriptures,
and have been instructed in Your glories,
   and yet I have become occupied in shameful things!

Practice makes perfect, especially reading books in the areas that interest you.

If you can find translations of Orthodox Christian books into Japanese and English. First read the book in Japanese to get a basic idea, and then read it in English.  Translations are not word for word, but in reading the English translation, you will learn a lot of new words.

I got the Chronicles of Narnia which are translated into many languages.
