The Rules Of Disengagement

July 27, 2013

In her book Throw Out Fifty Things, Gail Blanke outlines four “Rules of Disengagement” to help people clear the clutter from their lives. The first rule states: “If it . . . weighs you down, clogs you up, or just plain makes you feel bad about yourself, throw it out, give it away, sell it, let it go, move on.”

I think this Rule of Disengagement has a spiritual application too: We don’t have to stay connected to past sin. Joseph’s brothers struggled with this. Years after they sold Joseph into slavery, they recalled their cruelty and feared revenge (Gen. 50:15). So they sent a message to Joseph, begging for forgiveness (vv.16-17). They did this despite previous merciful actions and reassurances from their brother (45:4-15).

Many of us remain connected to age-old offenses despite mercy and forgiveness from those we may have hurt. However, true freedom comes when we confess our wrongdoing to God. He forgives it (1 John 1:9) and separates us from it (Ps. 103:12). As one verse puts it, He throws our sin into the depths of the sea! (Micah 7:19). Because of this, we can remind ourselves that the Son has made us free, and we are free indeed (John 8:36).

’Twas a glad day when Jesus found me,
When His strong arms were thrown around me;
When my sins He buried in the deepest sea,
And my soul He filled with joy and victory.
—Albert S. Reitz. © Renewal 1946. Hope Publishing.
The price of our freedom from sin was paid by Jesus’ blood.

Read: Genesis 50:15-21

If the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed. —John 8:36
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 43-45; Acts 27:27-44

To: Kathy in Alaska

Love this:

It was a mystery, one of a kind
No doubt about it
Over my shoulder I was lookin’ to see
Just what was comin’, comin’ at me

One step up, two steps back
Right on the money
Got me right on the line

Straight from her heart
Straight into mine
Feelin’ I’m gettin’
Comin’ through fine
I’m gettin’ it
Straight from the heart

Try to remember, don’t you forget
don’t ever doubt it
Up from behind just hiding from view
The love of a lifetime my sneak in on you
One step up, two steps back
Right on the money
Clear down the line

Straight from the heart
Straight to your mind
The love that you’re gettin’
Is comin’ through fine
You’re gettin’ it
Straight from the heart

You’re lookin’ so puzzled, no need to be
Didn’t I tell you don’t ever doubt me
One step up, two steps back
What got behind you
Well, it got through to me

Straight from the heart
Straight to your mind
The love that you’re gettin’
Is comin’ through fine
You’re gettin’ it
Straight from the heart...

Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

A good group, Kathy - but I don't discuss politics there. The commute was a little rough this morning - since the Zimmerman acquittal, I have changed my route to avoid some of the neighborhoods I have heretofore traversed.

I've been going through Rock Creek Park both ways for the last couple of weeks - this morning I was about 15 minutes from the office when I encountered a detour that added a good 20 minutes to my trip. This afternoon was a typical Friday getaway - left the office at 4:30 and got home at about 6:00.

The weather has been beautiful here the last couple of days - we were at 60 degrees this morning - topped out at about 80. A lot of yard work tomorrow - I'm having a soiree Sunday with my sister and BIL and my daughter Mary.

M-L came up with a splendid idea. She thought I should show Beethoven grow as an artist by following his piano sonatas. This is a very good concept for a number of reasons, which I will go into next week.

This week I’m just going to post some miscellaneous Beethoven.

Beethoven’s Septet for mixed winds and strings was a huge success. The scherzo movement was arranged for piano, piano with strings, music boxes and hurdy-gurdies. It got to be so bad that Beethoven couldn’t go two steps in Vienna without hearing it. He was to say, “I wish I’d never written the damn thing.” I often feared he said, “Jeez, I wish God would strike me deaf so I don’t have to listen to it anymore.”

This is as catchy as it gets.

Beethoven: Septet in E-flat, Op. 20, scherzo

The Met did a production of Beethoven’s only opera, “Fidelio”, that moved the action from 18th Century Spain to modern day Central America. It’s a wonderful production and a valued entry in my DVD collection. At the end, when Leonora pulls a gun on Pizzaro to take the villain prisoner, it’s a Glock 9, not some wimpy little derringer. It also makes the sexual identity subplot work better because of modern day unisex military uniforms.

The basic plot line of “Fidelio” is rather simple. Pizzaro is running his own private fiefdom with his private army and his private prison. Florestan, the fighting newspaper editor, blows the whistle – and then is “disappeared”, Argentine style. His wife Leonora tracks him down to Pizzaro’s prison. She disguises herself as a man, Fidelio, and infiltrates the household of Rocco, the jailer with a heart of gold who runs Pizzaro’s private gulag. She romances Rocco’s daughter, something that would have reduced Mozart to naughty giggles had he written this opera. Eventually she goes down to the deepest dungeon in the prison, finds Florestan, releases him, pulls a gun on Pizzaro and brings him to justice. All in a good day’s work, and here the hero is a heroine.

A good operatic villain gets a chance to lay his case before the audience to show why he is going to get his just desserts at the end. Pizzaro is a gangster, and he gets a letter stating that the government, which may just know about his racket, is sending an inspector. He makes his case for murdering Florestan before he gets caught. You just want to hiss this villain!

Beethoven: “Fidelio”, “Hah! What a Moment!”

One of the most moving parts of “Fidelio” is the Prisoner’s Chorus. Imagine being imprisoned far too long and getting the rare chance to see light and breathe fresh air. Choristers at the Met have to have more than just fine voices. They have to be superb actors.

Have some tissues ready for this.

At the beginning of the second act, we meet Florestan in the dungeon, and he gets an aria of his own. He hallucinates that he sees his wife and sings a duet with the oboe standing in for Leonora. This is the amazing Ben Heppner.

Lynn-Dah is very sick from a tick-borne disease called anaplasmosis.
Her fever has been over 105 for over 12 hours, and she is in Intensive Care.

Please pray for her and for me too.
