Because I need to improve my skills in a certain language, I decided to read at least something that would benefit my soul, so what could this be? Some ideas are: Shakespeare, Homer, Dostoevsky-The Brothers Karamazov, the Mahabharata,mythology. The language I need to improve is German, so I thought of Faust by Goethe, but the author doesn't necessary need to be German, the most classic works are translated in many languages.
If you see my previous post, I am trying to achieve meditation and I was advised to avoid reading other scriptures, so that I remain focused on my goal. Is there literature that will not distract me? Thank you.
