Tagged: master, slave, centered

How does a master center a slave? Being centered is a Zen term that means a person is balanced, calm, healthy, peaceful, grounded, nourished. Some might see it as a relaxed state, one of calm, creative, full of the realization of being well-off, in communion with one's self and one's environment… How does a master center a slave? He does it by creating, with his slave, a right relationship, that is, one in which each is free to be him or herself; one with openness, honesty, and clarity of purpose. Centering comes from having a clear focus, mutual support, encouragement, and purpose. -- Jack Rinella

#201   + (24) - [X]

Tagged: bdsm, religious doctrine, opposition

BDSM appears to stand in opposition to much religious doctrine (speaking primarily to the Christian doctrines here), and there are aspects on the extreme fringes that in fact are in opposition to direct religious teachings. I said 'appears' for a very good reason. In fact, a large percentage of the spiritual teachings parallel the basic premises of D/s. -- Mistress Steel

#197   + (21) - [X]

Tagged: submission, spiritual, nature, symbiotic

A slave submits primarily to her own nature… That she requires a material, extrovert focus for her submission, i.e. the dominant, does not alter the fact that on the spiritual level her submission is essentially introverted. One could say that through the dominant she submits to herself by proxy… Each makes the other possible, tied together as they are in symbiotic interdependence. -- J. Mikael Togneri

Tagged: submission, masochism, gifts, power exchange

A submissive washing dishes for his dominant, knowing that each soap bubble, each swirl of water is a gift, an honoring, may feel the humming resonance of a hunger, partially satisfied, deep in his spirit. A domme, caught up in the meditative precision of tying each knot precisely *so*, may feel an echo of cathedral walls around her, each motion guiding her, and those around her closer to the God they seek. A masochist, floating in the scintillations of painwaves as the whip falls against her time and time again, may begin to feel their cadence as the cadence of prayer. A hesitant sadist may, with the first hissing of his partner's breath, begin to understand the transformative power he wields with his strap. -- Unknown

#228   + (17) - [X]

Tagged: masochism, sadism, transformation

In the absence of light there is only darkness and in the eyes of a True Sadist pleasure and pain are one in same. It is through pain that the True Sadist is Born and thrives, be it through the creation of physical, emotional. It is in this that One finds Their greatest joy. It is though the discovery of the pleasure of pain, the knowlage that it is His pleasure that a masochist is born and thrives. With Me, Sadism is not an area where there is grey, things are either black or white -- DarkSadistLust

#3   + (12) - [X]

Tagged: leader, woman, possessed

I do not want to be the leader. I refuse to be the leader. I want to live darkly and richly in my femaleness. I want a man lying over me, always over me. His will, his pleasure, his desire, his life, his work, his sexuality the touchstone, the command, my pivot. I don't mind working, holding my ground intellectually, artistically; but as a woman, oh, God, as a woman I want to be dominated. I don't mind being told to stand on my own feet, not to cling all that I am capable of doing but I am going to be pursued, fucked, possessed by the will of a male at his time, his bidding. -- Anais Nin

#4   + (12) - [X]

Tagged: bdsm, difference, kinky, spiritual

A riding crop and a blindfold doesn't make it BDSM. There is a big difference between being kinky and being in the scene. It's not a sexual thing to me, it's a very spiritual thing. -- DominaBlue
