“Loosens your mind from trying
to make sense out of anything“
“Mr. Nobody takes us on a journey that beautifully dismantles the world of form, of cause and effect, and shows what happens when we let go of our desire to stay distracted by a made-up world.”
David Hoffmeister on the Best Enlightenment Movies
Mr. Nobody examines the core belief that we can find happiness if we make the right choices in life. We can’t; it’s impossible. The script is written. The belief that we have real choices is cherished by the ego and keeps us striving for happiness. Mr. Nobody shows us that it is not true, that free will on earth is a huge deception. All the choices of this world are made in the oblivion of forgetting God. Not one of them is real. They are all meaningless distractions, and all of them lead to the same place: death.
Mr. Nobody is a montage that’s put together masterfully to loosen your mind from trying to make any sense out of the bodies and out of the world. This movie really starts to jump around and it’s part of the experience because it helps keep your mind from trying to follow things. If you feel yourself getting frustrated while watching this movie, it’s good to give yourself permission to just step back and use it as a meditation. It’s all designed to loosen your mind of trying to make sense of anything.
If you can grasp what this movie is getting at, it changes everything because you’re no longer living for the future. That’s freedom. The best wedding vow is, “We have no future together.” That’s the truth of it. And there’s a great freedom with that because you can give yourself full permission to be 100 percent intuitive. There’s no reason to hold anything back. The vibrancy is to stay in the fullness of that experience rather than going to the future and asking, “What do I need to do?” These quantum movies are to let go of your concern for time and see the laughter underneath that. The question of “What do I need to do?” dissolves.
There’s a line in the Course where Jesus says, “When you decide upon the form of what you want, you lose the understanding of its purpose.” (T-30.III.2) This is played out in the movie in terms of the relationship between Nemo and Anna. Nemo waiting for Anna every day at the boardwalk is an extreme example of being attached to a specific outcome in form. He has decided that being with Anna is the only thing that will make him happy. The words to the song “Mr. Sandman,” which plays throughout the movie, describe perfectly how we ask for specifics in the hope that they will make us happy.
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen Give him two lips like roses and clover Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over. Sandman, I’m so alone Don’t have nobody to call my own Please turn on your magic beam Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.
When we ask Mr. Sandman—the ego—to bring us a dream, we are asking for trouble! That is because a sense of lack and incompleteness lies beneath every request we make for an outcome in form. Happiness in form will never satisfy us. We can only be satisfied with content. Workbook Lesson 101 states, “God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.” But when we decide on which form is best—for example, the form of Anna or even the generic form that is “the cutest that I’ve ever seen”—we are no longer in touch with our universal will; we no longer know that our will and God’s Will are the same.

Jesus shared his profound wisdom, light, and love through the use of parables. He taught from a fishing boat, from the mount, during meals, or anywhere he was amongst people. He was a public mystic; his was a ministry that demonstrated the Christ.
Jesus used parables because he wanted people to be able to relate to his teachings. That is what I do in my travels and journeys; movies are modern-day parables. I use them as teaching demonstrations because people can relate to them; while watching a movie they can relax and let their hearts open up. Watching movies is an enjoyable way to wake up and heal. It is not as threatening as being, for example, in a family situation or confrontational relationship. Movies can help to “collapse time” in the sense that they can be used to get in touch with the unconscious in an experiential way. Excerpt from the book Quantum Forgiveness: Physics, Meet Jesus. Hear David talk about the best enlightenment movies as modern-day parables. Read as ebook or paperback (available Oct. 1, 2015).
Anything perceived as happening in the world need not be judged. You cannot have a better life or a worse life in form. You have no control over the world. The script cannot be changed. The script is the past— it is written. There is great release in knowing this, giving you full permission to be happy. It is really very simple.
