A recent posting on the kinky social site “FetLife” spoke to the “Spiritual Nature” of a Master/slave relationship. But isn’t it just about kinky sex? About the fun? The adventure, daring and risk?
Well, maybe sometimes…. for some of us, it IS just about the sex, the fun, the experimenting with others and with ourselves, our own light and dark shadows… And for many, it is part of our spiritual growth, our emotional growth, our particular expresssion of or developing into our authentic selves!
Well, that post on fetlife? I responded and included the question/answer below in their entirety.
So, “Is it just about the sex?”…. well, sometimes it is. Fun is in fact a life lesson we all have! That’s right, there’s two: Learning to have fun and learning to consciously create successs. We all have those two… so SEX is part of FUN for many of us!!! and there are others….
There are other reasons we participate in “kink”; as well as other life lessons… I have included an article with two tools I use to help people to discover:
- Their Life Purpose
- Their Life Lessons
- Their Souls Journey
WHY???? Beacause, I want to
- Inform you
- Awaken you
- Challenge you
- Invite you
- Love you
Yes, because if You are living in alignment with your soul’s journey… then the world is simply a better place!
Soul Journey, Life Purpose and Life Lessons (vanilla newsletter format)
Please do forward this blog or the above link to those you care about… unless you’d rather they flounder!
Regarding that conversation… Everything I and we do is about our life purpose, our journey. Sex, eating, sleeping…. how conscious we are of this is the only difference. Here is the post from FetLife describing the ‘bigger picture’ of one particular M/s relationship.
Who are you, what do you do? (Introductions.)
8 months ago
This is the obligatory introduction thread. Here are some questions to get people started:
Who are you, and who is in your power dynamic with you? (If you don’t have one, what is your ideal?)
What is your spiritual path, and that of the other people in your power dynamic?
How do you relate spirituality to M/s or O/p? Give us a blurb.

I am Sir Jim (SirJimBliss) here on fet life. My slave is chela aka cupcake.
What is my spiritual path? A bit longer of an answer here and easier to speak about My soul journey first.
I an am Enneagram 2- the helper/caretaker…this speaks to my souls path. You can find more about soul path of a “2” here: Enneagram Type Two .
My largest lessons related to being a 2 have to do with honoring what I want, loving and being loved. My path of growth is related to developing Myself and setting an example for others—remembering to take pleasure in my existence and to esteem and value others.
On this soul path, in addition to the life lessons we all have of “Success” and “Fun”, there are several others for Me which include: Character/Integrity; Service; Love (a comprehensive understanding); Healing/Teaching and Spirituality—to deeply explore My relationship with God/Goddess All That Is.
My spiritual path is related in part to my soul’s journey: To Deeply explore My relationship with God/Goddess All That is.
AND…My Spirit is WILD! Let Me introduce Him: He enjoys FUN…adventure, exploration, learning, curiosity, more fun and pleasure from it all. Hedonistic? Somewhat… Wild and sometimes dangerous? Well, no danger for me or those I’m with, although the more faint of heart do sometimes cower at what I consider fun.
My spirit LOVES the tastes of life… it is why He decided to join with My Gentle Loving Soul… to come on down and party while journeying and learning our life lessons.
and that of the other people in your power dynamic?
cupcake is also an Enneagram type 2 Helper/Caretaker… some of her life lessons are similar to mine. There is much to be learned here about her path and life lessons as W/we journey together.
I relate Spirituality with M/s as part of My spiritual path as it fits with My role as Master. As a healthy type 2, I like to be the embodiment of the good parent that everyone wishes they had…to open others heart, soul and spirit just because mine are already open… to teach others to be more deeply and richly human. At the same time, I am here to enjoy the pleasures of life, to have all I want! To honor and value the desires I have while balancing these with the honor and integrity I afford others in My relationships.
To guide and teach others in the world is my life work. To guide and teach slaves and submissives in particular to honor their selves and their role is an honor which I hold sacred. When not acting in My official “Master” role I am also: a teacher, a healer, a counselor, a hypnotherapist, a personal coach, a magician, a husband, a father, a friend, a business owner, a lover, a martial artist and a metaphysical being becoming more magickal and powerful everyday.
