"norman" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"To the folks, we're gonna drag my Friends, Norman stone the director into the second hour, and there's nothing he can do about it. This is the end of the first hour. Norman, we were talking earlier and I didn't want to forget it was Walter hooper, my goodness. Who was Louis secretary right at the end of his life, and who really was responsible for keeping Lewis's literary legacy alive? I mean, it's an amazing story, and if you want to know the story I interviewed Walter hooper at Socrates in the city dot com, which you can watch for free. I want my audiences to become aware of Lewis because he's a treasure. He's just an absolute treasure. Every part of him, all of his work, all these films you've made, it's a great investment for any animals and you're right about Walter. I mean, without him, we would have had very little of the later work of Lewis. He rescued it from a bonfire for goodness sake. Literally. Literally, literally. And then, of course, yeah, and he was also great. You met him. I met him. He was also great. He had great insights. He was with Lewis during the last few, I guess, weeks of his life. But then knew everything about him. He curated his history. But he knew it in heart. Yeah. So it wasn't a technical. No, it's really, it's beautiful. And of course, you hear this all the time, but people who are Catholic, always say, Louis was on his way. He would have become a Roman Catholic. We believe he was moving in that direction. And of course, Walter hooper said that to me in an interview or maybe Michael ward said it to me an interview. And I said, I really believe he would have become assemblies of God. I have information that he was going in that direction. So don't give me that Bologna. But he would have been Smith wigglesworth too. But anyway, so this film, the most reluctant convert, takes us through his life. Let's just keep going because after he spends time with the great knock and he really flowers, he blooms, he goes to Oxford, he's brilliant. But then he falls in with J.R.R. Tolkien. How do we pronounce it? Tolkien, Tolkien, and Hugo Dyson and Owen barfield, all of whom are Christians, and then everything he reads, everything he loves, whether it's by chesterton or George McDonald, they're all Christian. So he really. These friends became the inklings, of course, the writing group. But he met them. And argued with them, as you do in Oxford, and he was honest when they cracked open his theories and proved them wrong. He took it and moved on. And I think it's one of the most wonderful things. If you read the book, he goes into it in great detail. This man was seeking after truth. He began with atheism. Grudgingly so grudgingly, he gave way to theism, so terrible thing for him to believe in a God that has lots of implications. And he ends up as a full Christian and his life changed his writing changed. And actually, the lights got turned on. Well, the part where he just talks about being there are a couple of moments and you don't dramatize them in the film, but there's the famous moment where he's on the upper deck of a bus. And he feels as though something is happening to him. And I would say it's the Holy Spirit. There's no other way around it. God is doing something in him and giving him the choice do I let God in or do I keep him out? And I have free will. I can do what I like. He lets God in. But then he says, he almost felt that he didn't have a choice that it felt natural. He had to do this. It would have been violation of himself and truth. And that's, of course, before he accepts Jesus, but which will come to in the second hour. It's a privilege to speak with my friend Norman stone, the director, most recently of the most reluctant convert, you can find it at C. S. Lewis movie dot com. You must find it, go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com, check it out, and we'll be back with more. I'm.

"And the film is the most reluctant convert, the director of that film Norman stone, my friend is right here, Norman. We were just talking about how amazing it is to speak with people who knew C. S. Lewis. I did another Socrates and city interview with, oh my gosh. I think I had too much sudafed this morning. I did a three part series with his secretary, it'll come to me. That's how tired I am today. Anyway, the name's going to suck. Go to Socrates in the city dot com. But so in this film, our friend max McLean stars as Lewis. And it comes from his stage play. Does it not the most reluctant convert? It does. Max guarded from Lewis, words for words. He's a very good script writing Taylor. He tailored together Lewis's words from max nurse Louis better than anyone. And he created this one man show. And then I thought it was challenging. I took 6 weeks off and worked out how I would do it as a screenplay rather than the stage play. And I was let off the leash and I had the best time of my life. Well, yeah, max McLean, again, he stars as Lewis, brilliant, what can I say? But he he's such a devotee of Lewis that he has a tattoo of puddle glum and also a tattoo of misses Moore very creepy. But so he stars and what he does really is he looks to thank you for laughing. He looks to tattoo of misses Moore. Come on. Minto. I like there are a lot of people that they've tuned out and Howard Stern or something. So, but the fact is that in some ways it's a monologue. The whole thing is framed with him as the older Lewis who has written this book talking to camera and then you cut to moments from his life. Now whose idea was that was that max's idea or your idea at what point does he come to you? It was all mine. I have to say, if you don't like it, it's my fault. What I did was, as I said, I was let off the leash creatively. I had done a lot of one man shows where people like Jonathan price and Jeremy Irons and breaking the fourth wall is when you have someone look through camera. You mentioned it about beyond Narnia. I like that. So we set it all up. We all know C. S. Lewis isn't going to rise from the grave and come in front of the camera. So we begin it, I won't say too much about it, but we begin it watching the film get set up and at the end we come back to reality that. But if you think of Dickens, I like to think of Dickens. In Christmas Carol, the ghost of Christmas past takes the old reprobate back to his school. And he sees himself the ruined life old Scrooge sees himself as a youngster, left behind in school at Christmas with no one else there because no one wanted him. I always thought that was so much more emotionally strong because he was watching rather than they can say, and he was left. So if you think that was basically the inspiration of taking it this way. And it's powerful. He starts off with having the normal flashbacks. It is not really a monarch because we have great scenes. I hope it was great. Well, it's like a monologue, but then it keeps and the story. That's right. Okay. And for a personal interview, and then before you know it, he's actually appearing in the background of his memories. Then he's almost interrupting himself. His younger self. And it became quite a fascinating style, which I would like to pursue some more. Yeah, it was a wild thing when at the end he's in the church where the young version of him is taking communion, but he didn't think he is in the church. I mean, look, there's so much to this. Now, we've got to go back, there were some scenes with I guess we should tell the audience because not everybody is familiar with this the way we are. Lewis's life, I mean, it is fascinating and it's the story of his book surprised by joy. But he has a very, let's just go through this. His mother dies when he's very young. Devastating. His father is a real character, not necessarily in the good sense. And was very tough to deal with, I guess, Louis. He's the one with a puddle room. Huddled on tattoo on his back. Now he was a Welsh by blood and he never quite got over his wife's death. And as he says, a person who has just lost his other again. A person who has just lost his wife has to be very wise to bring up two brothers who share their own memories and their own thoughts together, but not with him. Well, what I noticed, though, was that now the two boys we should say a warning who is what two years older than a little. And C. S. Lewis, Jack, they were very close to their whole lives. They lived together until Lewis's death. But it really is disturbing to see the father be unable to get over his grief and in a way to take it out on the kids, not meaning to. But some of that is also funny. When he's ranting at them when they're sitting on the couch for having done almost nothing, but he's ranting them as though they had I mean, that was funny. Well, he was a he did speak in court. He was a legal mind and he took to any audience, including two naughty children. But I think, yes, somebody said to me once when I first did shadowland, as I said, but how can you have humor? She's dying of cancer. And I said, well, that's exactly why we need humor. If you go to Facebook and it was so here and that actor that played the father was very, very good with that. So there are these two boys, no motherly connection at all after she died, of course. And the father is giving oratory to them. Terrible exaggerations and shock horror, and they, in the end, just thought he was ridiculous in the end. I think they took him very seriously. But if you're paying attention, it's funny. That's the whole I mean, it is definitely funny. Then, of course, he goes off to be with the famous teacher, the great called the great knock, kirkpatrick, where and where was that? I can't remember. Where did he come? Where did he go? Sorry. Sorry. I'm a little village in Surrey. And strangely, that teacher had cheated his own father. He was an excellent tutor. And then warning his brother, who wasn't known for being brilliant academically, went to him for less than a year, I think, and then got straight into a very, very high college with honors. So he obviously did it. Lewis went out with a couldn't wait to get away from home, I suspect and got into involved with this guy. He said, he was a Presbyterian atheist. He wore a better suit on Sundays. It's a lot of it is funny, very funny. Okay, we're gonna continue the story with Norman stone. If people want to find the film, where do they go? Where do they go? Where do they go? They go to C. S. Lewis movie dot com. C. S. Lewis movie dot com will be right back. Hey, get rhythm. When you get the blues come on, get rid of them. When.

But he also edits well. So he edited my teaser. But he's now just spending a bunch of time in America. He loves it. Well, we have to say that you have to tell my audience some of whom will get it who your wife is and who her father was. Her father was called Magnus Magnus and I loved that name. And he became very famous in Britain. He invented a thing called mastermind, which was made gone for 6 shows, 25 years later. He invented me. Inventing that.

That's maybe the first thing that I saw by you and I think it was 2000, maybe or 99, I was just blown away by what you did in tales for the madhouse, which was on the BBC, and that's when I thought, who's this guy? And then we met. Yeah, and a stranger Eric. They've got a connection with this. The latest film on Lewis, because they were speaking to camera. Well, no, that's why I brought it up. I said, it was the same kind of thing that you make it work. And I mean, some of them are just outrageous. The one, what's the most haunting one? Oh, with the older gent who plays father Christmas in oh, James Cosmo, he played the centurion. I mean, for people who haven't come across this, the idea was the BBC used to have 15 minute programs through Easter week. And they were usually sad affairs made by people that had no faith. But would wear sandals and a teak Roth and sit outside. Outside Jerusalem and ponder thoughts and quote saint ignatius or something. And I managed to get together some money. And I said, why don't you do drama that we can't afford it? And they let me do it because I brought half the money to the table. So I was allowed to invite very good actors to that. And for example, okay, for example, if Jonathan price, for example, Tony Robinson big over here is big over there. One of the girls from Britain who was in Friends, you have dame Eileen Atkins. And dame Eileen Atkins was in one of those. She was one of the greatest that's before I knew who she was. Yeah, she's good. And they were eager for two reasons, I think. They're eager to play this for ridiculously those sums. They could hardly afford the bus back. But they were on camera all the time. They were able to show how good they were. I wasn't going to go anywhere. It was their performance it's an actor's dream. That's right. And it was. And they did it. And they all said it because they trusted me. I'd work with them all before. So Robinson, from the madhouse. I wanted that some brick box. I wonder if but I mean, no kidding. These are great. I try not to blow smoke folks. This is great stuff. The Narnia code featuring the young aircraft access talking to camera. What did I say Tolkien's a jerk? I joked, as I often do. And we got letters of bitter people. How dare you? But anyway, Michael ward's book planet. Of course, it's planet Narnia. But you made it into a film called the Narnia code. And then beyond Narnia, I don't know if that's available. I suspect after my conversation last night, it is. I don't know how they do it. I'm in Britain, I don't get. They must have some sort of calling up. You step in who is your interested in? And it's all that they are sitting on a mountain of BBC top work. So I was honored to find that. They could find my stuff on that. I know there's so much great stuff on britbox. Why watch Netflix for the love of Christmas when you can get britbox? It's fantastic. But beyond Narnia starring our friend the late Anton Rogers, I was very moved by that when you made it. I can't believe it's already 2006 when this came out. But it was people have heard me talk about one of my favorite films of all time is the Christmas film starring Albert Finney, the Scrooge starring Albert Finney. And in that Anton Rogers plays Tom, the hot suit man, and he's about, I don't know, 32 or something in that..

"Folks there's a new film about C. S. Lewis called the most reluctant convert, I recommend it highly highly, very highly. And I thought, wouldn't it be great to get the director of the most reluctant convert about C. S. Lewis in the studio? Unfortunately, oh, wait a minute. Norman is that you? So me? It's still you. All right, let's keep talking. I have to plug myself in here. The book surprised by joy, which is C. S. Lewis's, I guess you could call it his autobiography, his memoir. I modeled my own spiritual memoir fish out of water on surprised by joy because what I like about surprised by joy and what comes out in the film is that Lewis doesn't only talk about spiritual things. He tells you about his whole life. And by giving you the context of who he is and growing up, the epiphany that comes in his later 20s, it has a resonance that it wouldn't have if he just said, let me tell you about God. He goes through the whole story. And it makes it very honestly. I was gonna say it's not some spiritual story. It's honest, but you have to be just tremendously familiar with this material by now. I mean, I am so familiar with it that Suzanne and I watched the last night. And I found myself I paused it and I quoted the next line. And then I hit play and there's the line. You know, I mean, how many times have I heard versions of this or whatever. So it's something you're very familiar with, but I would guess it would help you to direct the film. Yes, it did. I mean, I've been it was 19 80, I think when I started preparing for my first Lewis film. So yeah I love him to bits. He speaks clearly. He's got humor. It's the truth, truth truth. Well, you know what the real thing fun was when we were doing shutter lands back in the early 80s. I met the people that were still there. I met people who knew him, you joy. I went to tea in a little miss marvel cottage with a wonderful lady who knew them both. And she just. And they, there's more than one that is opened up the other side that doesn't get on the page. I

"He walked a lot. He walked a lot, but he did not drive. That's true. Ever. And he is in the sidecar of this motorcycle. And he says, all I know is that when I got into the sidecar on the trip to whip snake zoo, I did not believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. And when I got out of this sidecar at the whip snake zoo, I did. That's right. When God creeps up on you, he just keeps on that. It's not always the Damascus experience, but it was very real for Louis. It does have a slightly communication because in Britain, there are still a few of these around and people do laugh at them. So but that was who cares? That was what happened and that's when it got crept up by self and said, hello, and he got there to this open zoo and he said, wow. Hello. But what I like about it is, again, you talk about the honesty. A lot of us feel that there's often with evangelicals or there's some kind of a what do you call it? It's a procrustean bed. You've got to fit the narrative into this. It has to happen this way. And with Louis with my own life with a dream, but with Louis, it doesn't happen that way at all. It's not that a, I walk down the sawdust trail and I laid my crack on the altar, and I gave my life to Jesus. He's in one moment he's on a bus, the next moment he is in a sidecar, and God comes to him gradually in this completely different way. It really is strange, beautiful, amazing, and I think very, very instructive that he describes this process and he says it's like the person who is waking up, suddenly you realize you're awake. You've been sleeping and suddenly realize you're awake. I mean, it's so beautiful. We'll be right back talking to Norman stone. Living in the hopeless hungry side of town..

Welcome to the Eric metaxas show with your host. Eric metaxas. And if folks today is Thursday, hard for me to believe it's Veterans Day. I remember Veterans Day falling on a Thursday. Do you remember that? No. It's just November 11th. There's always I know. Yeah. Well, listen, I say this in most of my speeches now. There have been people who have given their lives to this country. There have been people who've given years to serve this country. We are all every single American obliged to give now, if you don't give your blood in your life or you don't serve in the military, you need to give another way is we need to keep the republic. And we're going through a difficult time right now as a nation because we've forgotten this. And so I just want to remind everybody that when you think about these veterans, think about the fact that it's not just for some, we're all supposed to do something, whether that's, you know, teaching our kids about what America is and why we're a great country and why we had a war of independence and why we had a Civil War. All that stuff is really important. So I just want to say, first of all, happy Veterans Day to my fellow Americans, but think about it along those lines. We all need to do something to keep the republic. Okay, today, Norman stone. Norman stone. Norman and I have been friends for over 20 years, and he is a great film director and an amazing friend, like a dear dear soul. So during the interview today, we're going to have him on today for both hours. I'm going to pretend that, you know, we kind of don't know each other that well. Yeah. Just to be professional. But just right now, I want you to know that I really love him and his work. Some of his work is so amazing. So maybe we'll get to talk about that today. But in both hours today, my friend Norman stone, why? Because there's a new film out called the most reluctant convert, you'll hear all about it at C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis very exciting yesterday. Tomorrow, tomorrow. We have Fox and Friends, Brian kilmeade. He has another book out history book, Brian kilmeade is a great guy. I got to tell you. I am really thrilled that we get talk to him for the full hour tomorrow. And I've been reading his book on the train and it's really excellent. He wrote a book on the train. No, it's the book that he just wrote. Oh, you mean the book that he wrote, you're reading on the train. And that is what I'm trying to say here. No. Yeah. And the book is about Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Okay, in our two today, before we do the second part of the interview with Norman stone, about C. S. Lewis? We're doing an ask me taxes. Folks, that's where you ask me the tough questions, and I come back with answers of varying kinds. And we're going to try to keep it serious this time. Maybe. Maybe. But we do it. We really do it every week on Thursday. And if you're not following me on Instagram, hey, what do you want from me? But we do it every Thursday in the second hour. That's today our two. So two hours with Norman stone, but before the second hour, we're going to do ask me taxes. Today I fly down to Virginia. I'm going to be at Liberty University tomorrow and Saturday. And then I fly to Alpharetta, actually I fly to Atlanta. And I'm driven to Alpharetta, where I'm speaking at restoration church twice on Sunday. If you can get to Alpharetta, Georgia, I'll be signing books and all that. I love meeting people in line and signing books and all this stuff. You know, it's interesting you do a lot of sermons. I'm wondering you have honorary doctorates from universities. Do you get an honorary pastorate from these churches? I get bugs. I get Jack. Okay, now listen. I don't want to forget, I'm going to Albuquerque. The following week, whereas my dad says, Albuquerque. Please pray for my dad, still struggling, won't give you details, but so many people have said, how's your dad doing? And I get choked up to the fact that strangers, people I just met are asking about how my dad is doing God bless you folks. Thank you. Finally, we need to talk about flatulence. And I don't like to talk about it in some serious subject. But at the GI summit, the other day, the other day, a couple of weeks ago, we know that Joe Biden, I think he was trying to send a message. I don't know if this was like 3D level statecraft about the gas pipelines and all this different stuff. Camilla Parker Bowles was the unfortunate pop porn wall. Oh, corn was the unfortunate recipient of his quote unquote message. And let me just say she got the message loud and clear that he I think he may have been sending a message about emissions, or you may have been sending a message on behalf of the late Princess Diana.

Get into your discography and all the artists that you worked with and some stories there i always love to ask producers this question to start and that is where did it all start for you. Because the the path that producers have taken to become producers is often pretty interesting whether they were musicians themselves or live engineers or whatever whatever the case may be how they got into that world so for you. I imagine growing up in england as a kid. You found a path that took you into producing records. Can you tell us a little bit about that. yeah When i was in my pains of his in a couple of bands and It was difficult in those days to get anything. Done it like First of all it was difficult to afford the equipment Then it was all about trying to find somebody who had a van. And then usually the guy with vanden playwright. Well so you know it was so lots of things in the way so I want to play for quite a long time. But when i was about eighteen seventeen eighteen i went to Gemini aunt so then that in the new musical express which you've probably heard enemy sir. Yeah and that was an advocate.

"Hi this is norman fisher. Life is generous. It's abundant and expansive never stingy or small minded. It keeps ongoing bubbling up and expanding wherever it has a chance the grass is on. The hillside are ready to burst out green as soon as a little rain falls and a little sunlight peep through weeds and vines tangle all over the place live stopped in one place pops up somewhere else. Nature is prolific. the practice of generosity is one way to reflect this abundance creatures who share in life's great abundance freedom and energy. We always have possibilities. Can't we be as generous as trees. If as living beings we are heirs to generous spirit. What blocks. I find that the stinginess of our minds our desire to judge evaluate separate define often stops us from opening to the abundance. That must be within us living beings that we are. How do we go about challenging and opening up our stingy attitudes about reality. I we can pay close attention to our thoughts and viewpoints. We can study our minds in meditation and the rest of life by noticing whenever we feel pinched small fearful or stingy whenever we clinched up with defensive or protective feelings in meditation we can learn to identify these feelings in our bodies and minds noticing tightness in our chests and breathing the clenching in our shoulders and faces the ol- familiar paranoid and panicky trains of thought with lots of patient repetition and training. Eventually we learn how to notice these things before they run away with us. We learned to catch ourselves in midstream and just literally stop. We take a conscious breath to and ask ourselves. Is this really true. Am i really under attack. Is they're really not enough to go around. And we ask further. What are the effects of this habit of mind. This doesn't happen all at once. This process and these questions are practices. We take them up repeatedly. We work at them usually. When we ask these questions we answer. No what's bothering us is probably more a matter of pride habitual defensiveness in fact when we reflect further. We noticed that the consequences of this habitual response are not good. We end up with words. Deeds feelings and thoughts at caused us trouble. If we investigate and intervene like this again and again we will eventually see our small-mindedness for what it is an unsuccessful and foolish habit based on inaccurate information a bad attitude doing this consistently takes mental discipline. It's a kind of emotional yoga but when you are motivated and determined you can do it. Especially if you have the support of your meditation practice in a community of friends to help you meditation. Practice is the best way. I know to cultivate the expansive attitude. Generosity of course. Possible to sit down and meditation crab into yourself obsessed with your thoughts worries and the constrictions of your situation to practice. Generosity in. Meditation is the opposite of this. You open up your fear and anxiety soften and you sit in the middle of the great gift of limitless imaginative life.

"Welcome back that Norman Wolf on the line. . Norman how are you? ? Doing really good surly more. . Time but we have to be on your show that glad to finally have gone here. . I know we've been shedding for quite a long time so good to have you on the show. . So you wrote a book while back called Living Organization and <hes>. . It's one of those timeless books. . So it shows the audience a little bit about you in in the story behind this book. . Be. . Happy to Michael. . Yes. . I wrote the book back in Two Thousand and eleven which time I'd say that seems like, , wow. So . many years ago <hes>. . I wrote the book because of three reasons one is. . The success rate of of organizations and people individually. . Achieving the goals that the stated objectives, , the strategic initiatives, , whatever you WANNA call it is is pretty poor. . This statistics say that they they succeed to. . Fail other rate of seventy percent. . So only less than thirty percent of those and I said individuals because. . <hes> I was reading statistics recently that says New Year's resolutions. . Success Rate is less than twenty percent so that feeling about eighty percent. . So so I began to realize there's something about the way we go about life <hes> in in in businesses especially. . That is missing something and the second reason the book is after being in business for well over forty years now. . There's almost like a <hes>. . I hate to use the word pandemic these days. . There's almost A. . Pandemic of sadness people just ending engage they you know the the engagement factor against twenty three percent of people engaged in what they do. . Not, , a very high success rate. . And so you know I. . After working with so many companies I began to realize why is that in? ? Can we do about it and? ? The solution I realized is that we have. . Kind of as a society of all the way of looking at life through a lens of you might call it Newtonian physics. . It's a very mechanical approach to life. . And at least off some <hes>. . Elise out all the stuff around relationships and and meaning and purpose in belief systems and assumptions that just says focused on what you WanNa do and just do it and boom. . That's it and you know that just isn't good enough. . So I wrote the book to explain how all that works and. . In in how businesses themselves really are living entities. . Like people they operate like people <hes>. . You look at the department, , any leader who who really steps back and looks at the various departments they. . They always can sense <hes> that the departments are <hes>. . Personalities like my sales department is going to have a fundamentally different personality than. . Been My accounting department. . And it's just like people different proclivities, , different personalities, , different belief systems. . And and we think the only way to get them aligned and working together as through set of goals you know give as an they ignored this whole relationship piece in what I call context piece. . The belief systems the sense of identity of who we are as an individual also applies to the sense of identity of who we are as a collective of individuals. . And we have no all of that stuff. . So I wrote a book to explain how all that happens being a scientist and engineer by training I have a very logical. . Approach to things. . So I created a <hes> SORTA engineering formula for how it all plays together. . And that's really what I wrote about in the book. . Like I said before it's a timeless book and when you said about how the people aren't engaged in. . Monster Dot. . com just released a study. . That right now close to seventy percent of people are. . Saying that they're they're really stressed or burned out about work and. . So you take that percentage of seven out of ten people burned out. . There's a percentage of those people that would be normally engaged in willing to go the extra mile to do whatever they can because they want things to be better enough only for themselves, , but for their organization. . But if they're too tired and fatigued, , they're not even engaged anymore. . So it has such a huge effect on the strength of an organization and. . During, , times like pandemic or any type of economic downturn if your organization isn't acting at its best, , you're vulnerable and you might end up seeing a four lease sign in your office space because you won't be there anymore. . And that's what we're seeing. . You know one of the. . The. . Interesting <hes> I'll say byproducts of the pandemic is as talked to leaders around the world beginning to realize that. . He has the way I say it we used to come to work for the purpose of getting work done by we went to the office because that's what you you did things. . And a byproduct of that is. . We build social connections. . Really don't pay attention to that just sort of happened it unconsciously or as a byproduct. . Of speaking with the c o the other day in in he said. . You know he's he's closed as office space independent Macapa sent everybody home and asked him if he was going to. . Go back as things are opening up and he said now we don't need to meet. .

"Zen priest. Norman is the author of many popular books including his most recent publication. The world could be otherwise imagination and the body Safa Path in his fascinating conversation. You'll he norman share stories from his own spiritual journey from aspiring young poet living in the woods of Northern California to meditation teacher and celebrated author. Norman talks about how early encounters with death predisposed him to religious and philosophical inquiry. And how reading? The existentialist would pave the way for a fascination with sin. You'll also hear Norman discuss the topic of doubt rather than providing faith certainty. Buddhism provides a pop a set of questions in which we discover what life is and who we are. Lastly Norman talks about what it means to be a teacher of the Dhamma as well as his own relationship to himself as a teacher of Buddhism. I so much enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do too. I did have the first question that came to me and it was when I was just sent yo bio and it said that you have a title Zo Kit Sue. I don't know if I'm pronouncing it correctly. That's new to me and I was just wondering what that means. And what does it represent? Well it's not a title it's just it's just my name. So so maybe you're aware that in Zan when you or dane either as a lay disciple or has a priest and a lot of people will I. Dane is a lay disciple and then later ordains a priest. That's fairly typical. Get your given a diamond name. And everybody has a person's personal name and the personal name usually has four characters. So there's and and and it's a two two character names so Zo Ketziot is to character Zo and Keto and those are the first two characters of my four character personal name and the characters translate as Elephant Cave. Zo Is an elephant. Like there's these Japanese water dispensers with like big long snouts on. I don't know if you've ever seen in those are called Zo shitty or something like that L. Elephant container so so as an elephant and catch you as a kind of a cave or grotto where people meditate so The they say that In Asia in ancient times when they were looking for caves to meditate in there would be caves where that elephants would be drawn to because the caves would have like some kind of. I don't know if this is true but somebody told me this. The cage have some kind of mineral in the walls of the cave that the elephants would like to lick on and eat for their digestion. So the elephants would go into these caves in search of this mineral and then they would over centuries. I rub their flanks against the Cave. Making the cave like really nice and smooth and pleasant and then later on meditators would go in these caves and they called him. Elephant caves for meditation so That's very unusual name. I've never there's a lot of names that are common in Japanese character names. You hear a lot of names. A lot of them are names that were given in the past that famous monks nuns. You know but this is a really unusual name. I don't know why I have this name. My teacher gave it to me and when I ask them like how come you gave you the name. He didn't seem to remember having done it. And that's because I think that he was a very busy person and he had a lot of students. I don't think he really particularly noticed me. So he just probably have random names assigned to people randomly so. I don't think there's any special reason why I have that many but it's so people yeah people often think it's title they think. Wow this is some very special title. I never heard this before but the thing is I don't like titles I I don't I don't ever like to use any titles Nobody calls me Rossier Censeo or anything like that. They just call me by my name and in fact hardly anybody calls me Zo Coetzer. They just call me by English name. I had that impression that you want to into title so then when I sold that bio and it intrigued me and I was like wow. Maybe he's I've never seen that title before. Maybe he's got the highest one I've ever seen before. And so he might be compelled to use it. No no no. It's not a title so Who was a teacher that gave you that name? Richard Baker Richard Baker. And and. How did you meet him? Well let's see. I was studying zen in the Berkeley Zen Center and but the Berkeley San Center did not have the opportunity for monastic practice. So the San Francisco Zen Center which is a much bigger organization. Had A monastery at that time just just opened a few years before call. Tuskuhara and I went there for visit and I really wanted to go and do monastic practice and so in order to do monastic practice. You had to be a student of the San Francisco Zen Center system so I started attending. Dharma talks by Richard Baker and And that's how I met him just by I. I didn't really I eventually. Of course got to know him personally and still know him personally now but in the beginning I attended his Dharma. Talks like a lot of other people and I was one of the many many Younger people who were drawn to the San Francisco Zen Center in the very early nineteen seventies. So he gave you the names. O Kit Sue and that was your deigned name is that is that right. Well I I got that name as a lay ordained disciple and then when I was dating later as a priest I retain the same name I'll k. And normally it's full syllables. Did you say yes? Yeah well Yeah the last. Usually you only go by to The last two syllables are a wrench. Oh so my second. My first name Elephant Cave and then Rancho can be translated in various ways it the character's mean something like to to to face something and to shine Saw My my route teacher from Berkeley Mel Weizman translates that second game as turning toward the light which is a really wonderful translation. So so my England in English. You could say my name is elephant cave turning toward the light. I love it. I don't know I'm fascinated by this. Fan is very elastic. The Japanese in fact I've given dominating so many many people over the years and it means a lot to people right because your teacher in my case. I don't think my teacher particularly no mayor new. You know why he was giving me that name as I said a minute ago but usually when I give names I know the people right so I give them some poetic name from the Dharma and they appreciate it right because it's like. Oh Yeah I have a new name now. This is sort of my new destiny my new sort of path in life and so it is a beautiful. It's a beautiful thing to have these Dharma names. People enjoy them and they take them seriously and the in charge them. Yes and you said when you're explaining it. You said that you grew teacher. Mel Wise Men gave you This had had a translation. What did you mean by route teachers interested in that as well? Well he's you know you can have as you know you can have a lot of A lot of teachers a lifetime. Most people will have more than one just one teacher. But there's one teacher who is closest in whom usually it's the teacher that you start with an imprint. Sue initially in Dharma and so Mel Who's still alive now. He's in his. He's ninety. He was my first teacher. And when I introduced me to the Dharma and later after my initial ordination when it was time for me to receive Dharma transmission and full ordination. He was my teacher for that process. Allow so he. He's been my my main really my main teacher and the person who's Dharma. I am following more than anybody else. And so that was at the Berkeley and center. Well well we. I studied with him at Berkeley senator about five years and then after that as I said I wanted to do. Monastic practice in the monastery for about five years and then after that. I remain with the San Francisco Zen Center for the next baby. Twenty some years and moved from the monastery to Green Gulch farm zen center where I lived for another fifteen or twenty years. You would be Abbott Co Abbot of San Francisco Zen Center eventually. Yeah Yeah
