The slave’s Vessel :

A slave is trained to serve her master in the daylight as well as in his bed at night.  Her domestic or other service is essential to the success of their lives.  Every slave needs a vessel which she can fill and serve her master

She serves, obeys and pleases her master.  Not every act of service needs to be ordered by her Master.  She just knows the vessel is empty and fills it for her Master.

Carrying the vessel to serve

The simple act of carrying water as displayed above can be a beautiful act of honoring her Master.  She does not need to be told each time that the vessel needs refilled or where the well is located. she uses her reasoning powers and sees that it is empty.  She then goes and gathers the water.  She fills the vessel in silence and carries it to serve. She fills the need.

She knows she will not always hear the words “good girl” for each and every vase of water she carries on her shoulder,  but she serves just the same. Her duty is to serve. Her joy is in serving.  Her pride is serving well.  She knows she honors him by proudly carrying it with dignity.

She can take pride because she didn’t have to be told to fill the vessel, she just did it. Her Master is very proud of her because there is no need for him to continually watch the vessel himself and tell her that it is empty. She makes the extra effort to serve, and he can focus on other things. She in silence fills the vessel herself.   It is not even necessary that he sees the vessel was refilled.   It is only necessary that he has the water in the vessel always available to him.

Yes,  in the beginning he will show her which vessel to carry and how to carry it,  but there is no need for him to always tell her. She has a well developed reasoning power that he expects her to use.  She serves by being active in her service.  She fills the vessel in silence.


Richer life because she carrying the vessel

A Master’s life is made richer because of his slave’s service to him. She serves in so many ways and places.  she uses her vessels to shoulder many loads for her Master.  She is of little 24/7 value if she is unwilling to shoulder the loads of the vessels.

A well worn vessel shows the worth of a slave girl because she carries it often in service to her master.  The scars on a well worn vessel are honor marks showing his slave’s value.  It is better to drop and break a vessel while working hard than for her to be afraid to shoulder it in service to her Master.  Her efforts to serve far out weights the value of a vase. She will be given another vase.

Collecting Vessels

She serves or prepares for future service by gaining skills in such areas as cooking, massage, sewing & crafts, dance, bookkeeping or a hundred other skills.  Her focus is on serving, obeying and pleasing, and she takes positive steps to improve her ability to do so.  She collects all kinds of vessels to carry for her master in order to better serve. After all, she is owned 24/7/365, and that provides many chances to serve in so many ways.  Her vessels will be well used if she is willing to carry them.

The vessels she carries are not limited to domestic service 

Often her vessel is her job or business at which she works hard and with dedication.  This vessel like many others can be heavy on her shoulder at times.

She brings the vessel filled with the fruits of her labor home to her Master.  She kneels and presents the filled vessel.  She feels his pride.  Somehow the vessel now seems not so heavy a load.

She carries her vessel with pride. She knows her Master is proud of her for the way she carries herself while she shoulders the vessel.  His pride is always in her not the vessel she carries.


Every slave carries a vessel owned by her master.  The vessel has value only when carried.   The beauty is not in the vessel but in the slave that carries it.

Service – the slave’s Vessel — 32 Comments

  1. In addition to using her vessel to serve she can also fill a vessel with problems for her master do deal with. she fills her vessel and hands it to her master. His shoulders are strong enough to handle the load. He will make the decisions to handle it and move on. He will carry the load or transfer it where it needs to go. she is free to focus on carrying a vessel to serve not focus on worry. This is another level of trust she must learn.

  2. With time and Mistress’ conditioning I learned to let go of my attachments to self and focus on her and how best to serve her. in the beginning I was the vessel that was most important to me, it’s only human, but I learned that the vessel belonged to my Mistress and I learned to focus differently. Over time I came to the understanding that Mistress was not part of my life but that my existence was contained within Mistress’ life, that I was not a vessel but that I was encompassed by hers. I no longer had a life of my own but was absorbed into Mistress’ to be used by her as she wished. My roll then was to obey, conform and submit in every way to her use and control. Now the most wonderful thing, the joy of my existence, is to hear her say “good girl” and praise my behavior. Nothing else matters now because I no longer see my self as independent I’m contained within Mistress’ vessel, her life. If I displease her in any way it devastates me.

  3. The analogy of the vessels is a beautiful expression of the services a slave offers her Master willingly and without question. She learns of his needs no matter what they are are and does not have to be told but rather carries her vessels of duty with pride and love and much honor.

    I was taken by the fact of a slave being able to also present her vassals of worries and concerns to her Master thus she can serve him more freely and openly knowing he always cares for her and deals with her problems as her owner.

    When I read something like this I think on it and wonder on it and let it seep into the depth of me and my mind heart and soul.It was very impressive to me.

  4. Well said cattatail

    I don’t need to be bullied into obedience or beat into conformity I do it willingly and with joy. I embrace my slavery, my servitude is my existence and I love the chains that bind me and I love that these things where placed upon me by my Mistress whom I love above all things. I don’t crave freedom or autonomy in fact I give them up completely to be under my Mistress’ boot heal which is where I thrive and grow. My slavery IS my freedom, my bondage IS my treasure, it is where my soul abides. My Mistress is the arbiter of my reality I am mearly a puppet in her world.


  5. @Cuffsmaster…I appreciate this article that you have posted concerning the vessel of a slave. It is very well written and holds much wisdom on this topic. You cover many different aspects of what a vessel is as it relates to a slave and her service to the Master.

    In looking at the definition of vessel it is 1) A container for holding something; and 2)A person into whom some quality is infused. There are others but these two pertain so much to the vessel of a slave. I looking at your post above, these definitions can portray so beautifully who and what a slave is in service to the Master. The slave is a strong individual but also a very compassionate, caring one.

    The statement with which you ended the article…”The beauty is not in the vessel but in the slave that carries it”…is so true. Thank you again.

  6. @Cuffsmaster: Thank you for such a touching expression of service. As a slave I felt your words deeply. I have always felt that to give just for the joy of doing so is the greatest gift in my life, and learned many years ago that to give without the expectation of anything in return has given me more than anything I could have asked for.

  7. Every time i read this, it describes me to a tee. It brings tears to my eyes. I recently lost a good friend to the choice of others stupidity. She did not die, just was swayed another way and it makes me sad. But what it brings me to is this. A slave gives her complete self to her owner. Sometimes the owner forgets the slave has wonderful feeling’s of love deep inside for many people. So just a note to Owners, slaves need interaction with other slaves and to take it away hurts both slaves dearly. I lost one i love dearly now. And that makes me cry. If my Master told me to stop all communication with my fellow slaves, i would say no and except what punishment was deemed. But then that is just me.

  8. @jessiejane

    I am sorry for the loss of your friend. A wrong owner can do much harm. It is so simple for her to carry the vessel if allowed to do it correctly.

    I agree that you don’t keep a slave-girl in isolation. I have done that (somewhat but not completely) during early training for brief periods or for punishment but never for an extended period of time. We are humans and need interaction (well most of us).

    About the vessel post…. . I was in a rare artistic mood that day. Normally, I’m in a technical, investigative or research mindset. After that was my field of work.

    However, I do admit the Vessel post was more fun to write than the Theory section LOL .. When I found the lovely images and they inspired me.


    • It was a most wonderful undertaking Sir. I love it and read it all the time.
      I was a tech writer for 24 years, before I retired, so I understand creativity. And the opposite of that. I carry the vessel all the time Sir.

  9. I don’t know how I missed this.
    @Cuffsmaster,thank you,it’s beautifully described and the images are perfect and I relate to this completely.

    jessyjane,I am so sorry you lost a dear friend. I actually don’t interact with other slaves other than online,but I feel even that is so important.
    I am not kept isolated,I tend to do that to myself.I send you healing thoughts.

  10. Beautiful piece of writing, thank you! A beautiful analogy that I completely agree with.

    Reading some of the other comments; it gives hope. For example, Claudia’s post: “I was not a vessel but that I was encompassed by hers” – that is beautiful… Right now though, I’m still too self-centered. I know this of myself, which is the first step towards change, but it’s difficult. And especially when you read something like jessyjane’s post; that’s the epitome of my worries: betrayed trust. Interaction is so important, and I learn a lot from it. I sympathize with you…

  11. A beautiful piece with beautiful pictures.
    I am a male slave serving a beautiful Mistress – metaphorically I also seek to carry the vessel, bidden or unbidden, with love and pride.
    This has inspired me to try all the harder.
