"He is Master, and I am Slave.
He is owner, and I am owned.
He commands, and I obey.
He is to be pleased, and I am to please.
Why is this?
Because he is Master, and I am Slave."
~Explorers of Gor page 179~
The word kajira, simply translated, means slave. However, a Gorean slave will have taken the time to not only read the books, but understand the philosophy contained within the story. A Gorean slave will know that once she begs a collar, her life becomes her Master's, there is no compromise, no contracts, and no "rights". So, dina believes that the word kajira, translated, means Gorean slave.
So then, what is a Gorean slave?
A slave exists to please and
be pleasing to her Master, as well as to be as pleasing as she can be within
the Gorean community. She is not a princess who seeks to be served. Being a
slave is not a bedroom activity, it is a way of life for as long as
Master allows. She is one who has a need and desire to serve outside of the
fantasy. Too many times dina has seen a girl offer submission because she is
running away from life, and when the reality of a Gorean man's collar hits
her, she does not blame herself, she blames everyone and everything around
her. A slave is fulfilled in her service, not an excuse giver.
Master has told dina that a slave
strives for perfection always, even knowing that she will not always achieve
it. A slave is never complacent, she seeks to learn new ways to be
pleasing. She takes each lesson, correction, and punishment and learns from
them. She knows that a slave is ever evolving to be more pleasing to
her Master. Life has a way of changing. What Master expected from dina 6 years
ago has changed, dina changing along with them. A slave who stays stagnant,
never evolving, too soon becomes an uncollared slave.
A slave admits her mistakes, even when those
mistakes were made out of her Masterís presence. She does not make excuses,
nor does she whine. She accepts responsibility for her actions with grace, and
strives to correct anything and everything her Master feels she needs to. A
slave is strong, knowing that this is not an easy way of life. She
remembers her place, always. She does not rise above her station, nor does she
step away from it.
A slave expresses herself to her Master, keeping
nothing from Him. she expresses herself respectfully and openly. She bears her
soul, her dreams, fantasies, and nightmares, taking down the walls that she
may have surrounded herself in.
As a slave, dina strives every moment of everyday
to be pleasing to Master. Whether itís doing the dishes, working hard in
school, or being the slut she is (oh what a slut she is!!!). dina strives with
all of her being to be the slave Master knows she can be, to the Gorean man
He is. Master will take no less.
