Enlightenment Guaranteed by Doris Dörrie
Several years ago, I saw the German movie called Enlightenment Guaranteed directed by Doris Dörrie (original name: Erleuchtung Garantiert, 2000). This fun movie has great messages for the archetype, energy or Wavespell of the Yellow Sun.
The story is about two very different brothers who are each going through a mid-life crisis and they end up embarking into a great adventure in Japan to experience Enlightenment… among a few other things!
Gustav was devoted to Buddhist teachings and this trip meant the world to him. He had been preparing himself for a long time and was very much looking forward to spending time in a Zen monastery to heal his fears and doubts, and learn from the monks.
Uwe, on the contrary, was in the middle of a marriage crisis, smoking, drinking and far from being spiritual. When his wife decided to pack and leave him one morning with their children, he felt so lost that he asked his brother to stay with him. Well, they ended up both traveling to Japan and that’s when the plot starts… You can watch the official trailer by clicking on any of the two images.
It is a great story with lots of “messy” experiences and profound messages on how both brothers felt about life and their Awakening path. After challenging lessons on discipline, new routines, rituals, tasks and schedules, they each found their own way to awaken their inner flame, let go of expectations, clear their minds and be in the present. Ultimately, they learned to know themselves better and enjoy life!
May the sun always shine brightly in your heart!

In Lak’esh means “I am another yourself!”, a Mayan greeting that recognizes the Divine in each living Being. It’s a message of Unity that reminds us that, when we give, we are also receiving. In this way, the Mayan honored and respected each other, reinforcing the belief that we are all interconnected: what we do to others and to our environment will also affect ourselves in the end…
Munay means both ‘Love’ and ‘Beauty’ in Quechua, the language of the Incas. Munay, translated as ‘To love’, is one of the three principles of the Andean way.
