Sheen “nourished” by narrating Dalai Lama’s book
« on: December 08, 2011, 09:33:29 AM »
Quote
NEW YORK – For more than 40 years actor Martin Sheen has inhabited complex characters from the troubled Capt. Willard in the Vietnam film “Apocalypse Now” to U.S. President Josiah Bartlet on the hit TV drama “The West Wing.”

But for one of his latest projects, Sheen, 71, did not have to reach far. The devout Catholic narrated the audiobook of “Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World,” a new book by the Dalai Lama.
....
Q: As a devout Catholic, how did you feel about narrating a book that calls for thinking about spirituality and ethics in a way that is “beyond religion” altogether?

A: “You can’t separate any honest effort that is truthful. As my wife is always telling me, the truth is universal and omnipresent. You can’t question where it comes from. The Dalai Lama lives a very honest and truthful life. He’s a reflection of the Gospels, whether he would call it such or not. What he is striving to do with this book is to find a common ground in the secular world because his whole point is that the vast majority of the world is not religious or religiously inclined.”

Q: Aren’t there already a lot of ethical, non-religious people?

A: “Sure and I think the Dalai Lama’s book will encourage them and sustain them. It doesn’t say drop your religion; [it doesn't say that] you can’t go this path and remain a Catholic or a Protestant or a Muslim or a Jew. On the contrary, it’s about your humanity. That’s where we’re all united. I think what he is trying to do is enlarge the circle. He’s trying to ensure people that they don’t have to give up anything that they believe in order to enlarge their possibilities.”
If you will, you can become all flame.

Other than the fact that Martin Sheen is a Catholic, is there some reason this is placed in this section rather than news or some other area?

Is there something you want to know or say about it?

I couldnt help but chuckle.

All in all, this just sounds like hyper-emotional nonsense to me. He'll be "nourished" for about a month or two, then when the feeling goes away its back to coke, women, and "win".

I think you're confusing Martin with his son, Charlie.  But...who cares, really?

Ah, you're right. Sorry about that.

They were both great on Wall Street :)

How would that not have been more interesting. While Charlie Sheen does not seem to be a praiseworthy fellow (although I judge not in my abject humility), he probably would have had some interesting things to say about religion and stuff.

"Stuff"?  You mean like leading an exemplary lifestyle and being a shining role-model for youth?  That kind of stuff?

Internets is a phrase used by those that consider themselves to be hip to refer to the Internet. A joke states that the internet was invented by Al Gore, pluralized by George W. Bush. "Internets" was originally uttered by then-candidate Bush while campaigning. It gained meme status when he used it again in 2004

Read the whole thing. its pretty funny.

All in all, this just sounds like hyper-emotional nonsense to me. He'll be "nourished" for about a month or two, then when the feeling goes away its back to coke, women, and "win".

Other than the fact that Martin Sheen is a Catholic, is there some reason this is placed in this section rather than news or some other area?

Is there something you want to know or say about it?

It's interesting that, pre-Vatican II, not too many Catholics would have been eager to narrate a book written by a Buddhist. Sheen on how an Episcopalian helped him return to the Church:

Quote
NCR: What came next for you spiritually?
 
Martin Sheen: “Apocalypse Now” began a journey for me that culminated in Paris in 1981. This is when I was able to bring it all together -- my life, my family, my career, my brokenness. I was doing this little film in Paris and the family couldn’t come because of school and things. I had time to walk around and reflect on all that had gone down before, and I ran into Terrence Malick. I had known him from the early ’70s, since “Badlands.” At that time he was living under the radar. He is an articulate and spiritual man and he became a kind of spiritual adviser for me. We would talk endlessly when I wasn’t working. We would talk about spirituality and philosophy and the journey. He’s an Episcopalian.

NCR: That’s interesting. Because the Catholic News Service review of Malick’s latest film, “The Tree of Life,” says that “Malick’s agnosticism seems to win out.” It sounds like you would not agree with that assessment.

Sheen: He and his wife Jill Jakes divorced after “Badlands” [1973]. He was broken and went to a church in Paris and met Michelle Morette. They married in 1985 and he brought her to the States but they split up in 1998. Terrence married his childhood sweetheart, Alexandra “Ecky” Wallace, that same year in Texas. Ecky attended seminary and I believe she is ordained. Today they attend an Episcopal church. Malick went to St. Stephen’s, an Episcopal boarding school, in Austin, Texas, and he’s very connected to that school.
 
At any rate, Malick became a kind of life coach for me. He became a great anchor for me. The last book he gave me to read, and he had me read several times, was The Brothers Karamazov and it transformed my spirit. When I finished reading it I put it down and literally got up and walked to St. Joseph Church [the English-speaking parish in Paris]. It was May Day and I banged on the door and this Irish Passionist priest opened the door and said, “What’s going on?” I told him, “I have been away from the church for a long time and I’d like to go to confession.”
If you will, you can become all flame.
Extra caritatem nulla salus.
In order to become whole, take the "I" out of "holiness".

The pluralization of non-countable nouns is an internetzizm.

advices
psychologicals

etc.

It tend to reflect a less than strict use of the word or ironic. Using a z for the plural is an intensifier.

For example:

Some asks a question on OC.net about something that everyone says to ask your Priest about.

Knowing this, they say:

OK, I need some advices. Blah blah blah.

This acknowledges the above fact that the person knows the default and "best" answer is to ask their Priest and they still want advice from others. Others seeing the plural understand the person is going to take their advice with a grain of salt AND ask their Priest and thus can answer without the typical caveats or worries that this person doesn't know the SOP.

When some here give out some decent psychological advice in a loose sense, I often will respond with: Good psychologicals. This shows that I am acknowledging the fact the person is not a professional nor should their advice taken to be such, but seems to run right according to my experience and understanding of "psychology".

Now if I want psychological advice on something about which I know is basically an absurd situation and the answer is staring me in the face and am looking for just a push into the right direction, I might post:

OK, I have this situation. Blah blah blah. I could use some psychologicalz.

Or stronger yet zychologicalz.

Make sense yet?

I have great respect for Martin Sheen, who is indeed a devout Catholic. He is one of the few Hollywood actors whose social activism is authentic and religiously motivated, IMO. Martin Sheen was good friends with Dorothy Day and the Berrigan brothers, and he was active in the Catholic Worker Movement. Martin Sheen is also very Pro-Life. In fact, a few years ago when Planned Parenthood listed him along with other Hollywood celebrities as a supporter of their organization he was very upset and demanded that they remove his name from their list.

It's sad that his son has not followed in his father's social and spiritual footsteps. However, Martin Sheen seems to love his son deeply and apears to extend him unconditional fatherly and Christian love.

Martin Sheen is a great actor and a classy individual in my opinion, and you can't say that about too many people in Hollywood.
