There is obedience and there is obedience. What is commonly referred to as obedience is compliance to orders. What slaves require is an alignment of the will so complete that execution can occur without an order being expressed and so immediate the reaction is spontaneous.
Compliance goes through the mind. Obedience doesn’t. The work of slave development and related therapy is to rid the slave of all influences and reactions that force each order to go through the head for analysis before being acted upon.
Any issue of trust, self-esteem, self-image, fear, doubts, weakness, bad habits, need for justice, dishonesty, or any other conditioned response must be eliminated to instinctively act on real obedience alone. If we have personal doubt about the certainty of being “clean” of these habitual influences, each command must be referred to the mind to determine the legitimacy of the order.
The process of will alignment begins when we swear to obey unconditionally. Then, any reaction to an order that isn’t spontaneous, determines exactly where the next slave development work must be done.
