During the 1960s, Abraham Maslow devoted considerable research to the concept of peak-experiences. Maslow engaged in a variety of experiences and based his experiments on data from phenomenological reports derived from people of various ages. He became found that ordinary people may undergo genuine experiential peaks in even the most ordinary events and surroundings; such as seeing the beauty of nature, listening to music, or performing routine chores. A peak experience is an event that is memorable, establishes oneself as being present in the moment, exhilarating bliss, or deeply moving, there's also a feeling of transcendence or spiritual connection associated with it. The search for peak experiences is a common human motivation. The majority of people view peak experiences as accomplishments that are vital developments of their identity and guiding feedback for how they live their lives.
How many of you have wished you had a trigger to create a blank state in someone? Perhaps, you have had the urge to show someone they were in a trance or hypnosis by having them forget a number, their name, or a friend's name. While it is possible to hypnotize a person and cause them to forget they were hypnotized, their name, their phone number, and so much more, the memory loss may only be temporary.
I have often been asked by people in the lifestyle communities what roles do I train people for. Often this is a question of exploration and learning to know what more is out there. This has been a topic I have thought about often during my personal development and I am talking about this a lot after the release of my book, The Tao of Relationship Maintenance for Mind Controllers. After a move across country I am about at the start of establishing my House again and I have spent a considerable amount of time contemplating this topic. In my book I talk about what it means to be a servant in O&p culture and how being part of that culture influences my life and art. What I am going to do in this article is discuss traditional roles of servants in Houses and great homes of the past. I’ll also be sharing what these same services cost today. In sharing this information, I hope the reader will see the parallels of power exchange that exist in these roles and society from the past to today. I break down how to think planning to have these roles staffed in our home in order to make it a House of our own design and influence. I share with you the roles that I am seeking to establish at present in my House. Lastly, I share how I think about service. I welcome reader commentary on these roles and stories on how you have made your House operate.
Sometimes I am attempting to write one thing and my mind is flowing in multiple directions. Rather than fight it I give myself permission to follow the stream on inspiration. Out flowed this poetry and now I can write. Enjoy it.
