I have always admired the faith and devotion and focus I have witnessed some people to have for a chosen belief or calling. Their drive and their unwavering loyalty to a belief system, craft, talent or religion. Like the Dalai Lama, knowing your purpose in all moments, understanding your mission, dedicating all you experience in life to it.
Did I think this would show up for me in the way it did? In becoming a consensual slave? In agreeing to submit and obey, serve, love and even worship the Man I belong to? In surrendering everything to it? No. Yet that is exactly what it showed up as in my life.When it did, I knew I had found my purpose, my path, and my passion. Being a slave. The thought and the experience of serving a man, of surrendering all that I am to him, of being used and trained, of being guided and led, of obeying and pleasing sparked that passion and devotion to my path.
When I was quite young, I heard a line out of a song that said “live, as noone has lived, love as noone has loved. Give, asking nothing in return.” The beauty of that idea really touched me and I wanted to know what it was like to love like that. Through becoming a consensual slave, I have found out. what it is like and what an enormous challenge it is to ask for nothing in return.
I definitely have a lot left to learn and some challenges are bigger than others for me. Master's guidance and training, correction and constant motivation however, lead me continually forward. He helps me to understand and learn to overcome the moments and ideas that cause me to falter from my path.
There are so many religions, philosophies, spiritual paths and belief patterns that have the purpose of leading one in that direction. Slavery is the path that is leading me there. Consistently overcoming my ego with all of its fears and desires in order to love and serve my Master above all else, is an inspiring challenge each and every day. Though it may appear an odd way to live, to many, for me it is a sacred calling - a most noble quest.
