If only…

If only I could be this way, my whole life would change.

If only I could not be angry, my whole life would change.

If only I could be happier, my whole life would change.

And we always say to ourselves, ‘If only I could…’

And what happens is we say it, then we forget and don’t do anything about it.

All of these ‘if-onlys’ really are the encouragement of our soul essence that sits there and says, ‘try something different.’ But our mind goes ‘if only…’ without ever acting on it.

If we acted on these ‘if-onlys’ instead of just talking about it, life would be so totally different. Then we wouldn’t be sitting there saying ‘if only.’ Eventually, there is no ‘if only’ because you’ve done it all.

Please check out our 2017 retreat event, Discovering Who You Are And Putting Out The Real You. Join Réné, Maggie, and The Wonders in beautiful Mexico for a 7-day exploration of spirituality as taught by The Wonders. It is possible to translate that awareness of spirituality we all have into a practical expression in our lives. We hope what you’ll learn at this retreat helps you grow as much as it’s helped us.
