Hector and the Search for Happiness
David Hoffmeister through the Movie Watcher’s Guide to Enlightenment on happiness, the unhealed healer and finding purpose.
Emotion/Theme: Unhealed Healer, Purpose, Joy, Fear of Love, Family
Genre: Adventure, Comedy
Mini Review: Hector is a psychiatrist, who thinks he likes his life neatly organized, ritualistic, and contained. That is until suppressed rage and anger begin to surface and he recognizes that he is an “unhealed healer.” He starts to realize the hypocrisy of being the expert when he himself is so uninspired about life. In his search to learn about and find happiness, Hector is led on an awakening adventure that involves self-inquiry and discovery about honesty and integrity, true giving, life, death, fear, and love.
Hector’s true gift was always there, but in the “professional role” of therapist, his ability to truly listen and be of service to the Spirit was blocked.
Our purpose is higher than knowing that you can be happy, it is more like knowing that it is your calling and your inheritance!
