“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves, and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again—to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” – Pico Iyer
Ryan Fontana and Molly Joseph sold their music equipment, rented out their apartments and used the savings from their DJ careers to do exactly this!
After returning from Yosemite trip, the couple felt that something was missing in their lives, so they set out on an incredible dream journey across the Pacific.
For the young couple, the purpose of the epic journey was to live in the present moment and enjoy every aspect of love, to the fullest. They also wanted to unfold the purpose of living together, choose love over fear, and say ‘yes’ to adventure.
Together on their journey, over several months, they gathered some life-enriching experiences. They explored the ancient temples and jungles, paddled through waterfalls, found their spiritual side in the sand, discovered life underneath the sea surface and even helped some new friends along the way.
Molly, a cancer patient just three years ago visited different doctors in New York in search for a cancer cure.
For her, it was a dream come true- To believe where she was in comparison to where she is now. The dark sides of her life 3 years back suddenly got enlightened by this beautiful and adventurous trip. Both of their love lives got enriched further and this made the seemingly unlovable, lovable once more.
According to Ryan, “a relationship is a vessel for personal growth and transformation, first and foremost. We are evolutionary beings deigned to grow and expand. What better way to push yourself past the limits of your comfort zone than to be with someone on the same trajectory as you?A relationship should not just encourage growth, but expedite it, as both partners uncover and work through their “stuff” (limiting beliefs, karma, emotional resistance, etc). The result is a true soulmate connection where you look at one another with love, respect, reverence, and the ultimate understanding. The relationship is ever unfolding into greater and greater moments of awareness and joy as you two remember who you really are.”
The couple feels– This is what LOVE can do.
LOVE is LIFE; LIFE is LOVE
Ryan Fontana and Molly Joseph are certainly an inspiration to all. They chose to live a life above love and took their dream journey. When are you taking up yours?
