I have spent the last ten years reading all kinds of spiritual books.

The traditional ones: The Bible, Koran, Torah, Upanishad, Vedas, and Bhagavad Gita.

The less traditional: Popol Vuh, Black Elk Speaks, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, The Men Searching Meaning, and Meditations from Marcus Aurelius.

Even the more famous New Age ones: The Power of Now, The Four Agreements, The Untethered Soul, you name it.

After reading them, I have learned a lot, but if you were to point a gun to my head and tell me which of all the phrases in those books has changed your life the most, this one.

The spiritual phrase that marked a before and after in my life.

“If anyone wants to be my disciple, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” — Matthew 16:24–26
