DOS Manual Lesson 9 Fear and Obedience Until Death

MK10ART painting of Keith Raniere

Opening comments by Frank

I know many of you are impatient. You want to rush your lessons. But it takes time to become a collateralized DOS slave.

We have been through eight lessons, and I know some of you are anxious to be branded with a symbol of the four elements.  But you are not ready yet.

Today’s lesson is #9 – Principle of the Vow

 

Beginning of Lesson #9 of the DOS Manual

By Grand Master Keith Alan Raniere

What is the principle of the vow? What is the importance of the vow?

It’s their first true principle. It’s collateralized.

It has a deep conscience behind it, because they are worried about the collateral. It is a conscience of fear. It is not the highest, but ultimately, they should be able to make a vow, and it should be so distasteful to break the vow that they’d rather die than break their vow.

And that’s a vow for everything. That’s a principle.

So the vow starts off like a child with training wheels.

This very physical manifestation of the vow, with the brand, with all this stuff, that really might be the first and only thing that represents forever, until your last breath.

It is collateralized on an ongoing basis. More collateral is put into this thing, so we have an example from which to build all other things.

It is the strongest framework of all. And there’s the principle of the vow, the importance of the vow itself.

PRACTICES

Contemplate on the following:

1. Why is the vow your highest principle?
2. What does it represent to you?
3. How is the vow related to your loved ones?
4. How is the vow related to all the things you cherish?
5. How is the vow related to all of your highest values?
6. How does the vow encompass the most noble expression of all of these things?

End of Lesson #9

Begin Frank’s commentary

By Frank Parlato

Keith Raniere tells it like it is. By lesson #9, the slave is deeply in. Now the real secrets are told.

Raniere begins by asking two questions.

What is the principle of the vow?

What is the importance of the vow?

He says the vow is the slave’s “first true principle.”

Using the words “first true,” he implies everything else is not true. Being a slave is the first [and only] truest true thing in an empowered slave woman’s life.

Then Raniere says the best thing of all.

The importance of the vow.

“It’s collateralized.”

Raniere explains for the first time that the collateral is meant to keep the slave women in fear.

Listen to his words.

The Vow “has a deep conscience behind it because they [the slaves] are worried about the collateral. It is a conscience of fear.”

Fear my ladies. You must be afraid he will release your collateral. This is the importance of the vow.

But he offers hope. You fear he may release your collateral, but he provides a higher platform.

Death.

A slave is not to question why. A slave is to find it so distasteful not to obey that she would die. She will go from dread to a deadly state of obedience.

The fear of having collateral released is not the ultimate step.”It is not the highest, but ultimately,” Raniere says, “they [the slave] should be able to make a vow, and it should be so distasteful to break the vow that they’d rather die than break their vow.”

Using fear to force obedience, he teaches them to obey perfectly. They will train their mind that death is preferable to disobeying Grandmaster Raniere.

By the way, the vow means to obey your master, and hence Raniere, the grand master.

Every woman in DOS is under his command. Either directly or through his First Line.

Raniere explains that the vow of obedience is everything.

“And that’s a vow for everything. That’s a principle.”

He then explains that fear-based obedience is the beginning. It is “like a child with training wheels.”

But it is permanent. He is not letting slaves off their bicycles. He is empowering them. Those training wheels include “the brand, with all this stuff.”

The brand with the initials of Keith Raniere.

But it is forever. And nothing else is forever in this world for these empowered slaves.

Raniere writes, “That really might be the first and only thing that represents forever, until your last breath.”

And that last breath might come sooner rather than later.

The Grandmaster initiated you into the secrets of collateral.

Collateral is to help you keep your word until your last breath, and until you prefer to die rather than break your vow.

Last breath = collateral

Raniere wrote, a slave “is collateralized on an ongoing basis. More [and more] collateral is put into this thing, so we have an example from which to build all other things.”

Yes, Raniere will build on the slave’s fear of collateral being released, destroying herself and others. Hopefully, she will die rather than have it released.

Collateral “is the strongest framework of all. And there’s the principle of the vow, the importance of the vow itself.”

Held together with fear.

Now let us look at the “PRACTICES.”

They are easy enough. No action is required. Just contemplation. Contemplate… just contemplate…. deeply contemplate… on the following:

1. Why is the vow your highest principle?

In the beginning, because he has collateral on you, you obey. It is a negative highest principle. For instance, if you were in a dangerous neighborhood, your highest principle might be to take steps not to get robbed or mugged.

Later on, you go beyond to the point where you would rather die than disobey.

First, you are afraid, so you obey. Then you would rather die than disobey.

2. What does it represent to you?

It represents fear and death.

3. How is the vow related to your loved ones?

This is easy and wisely placed in a lesson where the collateral is emphasized.

Raniere wants to remind the slaves that releasing collateral will devastate the slave’s loved ones.

The slave probably gave ongoing collateral that would destroy every part of her life, including that which will ruin loved ones either directly or indirectly,

This is to help lead the slave to death – in body, mind, and spirit. Loved ones are not as important as the vow.

When loved ones are unimportant, death is welcome, and the slave is ready for higher levels of obedience.

4. How is the vow related to all the things you cherish?

At first, it is related, because collateral can destroy everything you cherish. But, in time, the only thing you will cherish is obedience to Raniere and death.

5. How is the vow related to all of your highest values?

Same as above. You must fear the destruction of your highest values via the release of collateral until you realize your highest value is to obey Raniere and/or die.

6. How does the vow encompass the most noble expression of all of these things?

Only by fear can we surpass the slave’s most noble expression. Until the day dawns when the slave only wishes to express obedience to Raniere unto death.

Unto death.

MK10ART Keith Raniere

They just did not understand this beautiful man who wanted death for his slaves as a form of empowerment. And the vicious ones put him in prison.

Apropos of that, I have created a beautiful new cookbook to complement my DOS diet cookbook. It’s called Eating with Grandmaster – A Daily Diet for the Next 120 Years.

  • Where are all the loyalist defending Keith now? Why didn’t the Master Slave dead Enders release these lessons on the dossier project if they really think it’s all so empowering and great?

    The dead Enders are very selective about only commenting when they can defend Danielle losing her medical license. Or just find a random place to talk about what a b**** Catherine is or how awful mark India and Sarah are but they’re never around to explain how they could buy into any of this ridiculous Master Slave garbage notice?

    Dead Enders also love to go after the people who are engaged in the civil lawsuit that’s the first clue to tell you who all the loyalist Defenders are here on the Frank report. I guess it’s too awkward for Nikki to pretend not to be Nikki and defend herself so she just speaks up on behalf of the other people as I don’t know Maybe someone named say Kevin?

  • I’m confused with the time line of this lesson. He is already talking about branding, but branding was brought up after they started having other slaves, right? If so he planned it since the beginning 🙆🏻‍♂️

  • Dumbasses too stupid to realize they were being blackmailed.

    ‘Cuz rambling idiot Vanguard called it “collateral”.

    What a comedy!

  • Fear.
    Not empowerment.
    The goal was fear
    Coercive control.
    Through FEAR.
    Blackmail. Threats. Fear.
    Living in a state of fear.
    For YEARS.
    Stress. Exhaustion. Hyper viligence.
    Fear.
    It’s for your own good though!
    Fear.
    It’s torture.
    Prolonged fear and torture
    But it will help you
    To do what we (Keith) want
    Pretty soon ‘all of this’
    Will feel normal -ish.
    Give us another up close pussy shot
    We your their us you they
    PS
    Pretty sure Keith is mildly retarded

  • Sorry but this is a sad excuse for fully disclosing the NXIVM materials.

    I don’t want Frank Parlato, or anyone else, interpreting these materials for me. I want to see them for myself and make up my own mind.

    The federal government owns and controls all the copyrights and trademarks to NXIVM materials. Is this how they let us examine what they have branded a racketeering enterprise?

    Through the hypocritical and cruel propaganda medium of one of their confidential informants?

    Let’s talk about slavery. Indicting someone on 18 felonies with the threat of decades of imprisonment unless they write and report on governmental targets for destruction.

    That’s slavery.

    The government should release all the NXIVM materials, without people like Frank Parlato interpreting them for us.

    Alanzo

    • Alanzo – when you gave collateral to Miscavege did he threaten to release it?

      I am sure you will answer no.

      Yet You knew that he had your collateral (or whatever they call it in Scientology ). You were coerced to do things over the years.

      Now it is clear you are still being coerced. You attack every critic of Scientology and try to discredit them. Brave people like Leah Remini Tony Ortega and Mike Rinder.

      You should go to the feds. He won’t dare to release your collateral

    • Alanzo – you’ve only uncovered the tip of the iceberg. They really have Frank over the barrel on a brand new set of felonies they’re holding over his head. Same game – new target. The new target they want Frank to write articles about??? You guessed it – Chrissy Ambrose. So far, Frank’s playing ball – but what choice does he really have when the Feds give him a weekly call and taunt him by cackling “little bottles, little bottles” at him.

    • Dear forum participants,

      Alanzo claims he’s unable to analyse DOS manual instalments due to allegedly Frank’s heavy manipulation of the original texts. Those of you holding authentic academic qualifications, know the meaning of quotations within the context of text analysis.

      This is identical to reading Nicki Clyne’s or Allison Mack’s writings. There is not anything else to say, the obvious has already being stated.

      Our patience is so stretched out sometimes…

      • Alex-

        Thank you for taking the time to answer eloquently state how we all feel. I couldn’t have said it better myself.

        Thank you!
        *****

        “You cannot understand what you don’t understand, because you can comprehend it, yet lack the will.”
        (Vanguard circa 2003)

    • “ Let’s talk about slavery. Indicting someone on 18 felonies with the threat of decades of imprisonment unless they write and report on governmental targets for destruction.”

      Get a grip. So the govt is after an unemployed dad in CT and a Swami in Oregon?

  • Fear certainly brings out the worse of one’s shadow side. This is why people are so easily manipulated and end up doing awful things to themselves and others.
    Again, it’s a classic narcissist M.O: using the truth (fear can help you keep your promises) and then distorting it to your benefit; it starts with self-censoring (it can be a useful tool) to complete obedience to an outside agency. Like a fly lured into an (at first very inviting) trap, once you’re ‘in’, there’s no way out.
    Practices. Contemplate on the following:
    What did you think and feel when you invented stories to discredit or hurt your family and friends.
    Did the lie come naturally? Did you think of the consequences?
    Did you use magical thinking and convince yourself no-one (apart from your direct master) will ever know?
    If you truly believed it would never see the light of day, then what value did your words really have? (self-delusion on top of a lie).
    Did you experience any guilty feeling or did ‘the end justifies the means’ and your loved ones just disposable ‘collateral damage’?
    How would your loved ones feel when they discovered you were willing to do this to them? How would you feel if you discovered your loved one had done this to you?
    Have you actually come clean to them, or are crossing your fingers you will never have to look in the eyes and face your lies?
    If you do face up to your lies, will you try to ‘spin’ the story to appear the naive victim?
    Were you so deep in fear that you would have done anything to stop your own collateral being released but had no problem involving others who you purportedly love?
    Can you face the fact that you might possibly be a moral coward (if you did it out of fear and felt some guilt) and/or have some ‘shadow’ psychopatic traits if you lied about others without a qualm?
    Sometimes, contemplating your own motivations and being honest (to yourself, at least) may be more instructive than meditating on ‘principles’, or the ‘vow’.

  • Kieth says the reason for collateral is punishment. “and it should be so distasteful to break the vow that they’d rather die than break their vow.”

    Contrast that to what the old Catholic Act Of Contrition says about breaking vows, that is, “sinning”. “I detest all my sins because of Thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love.”

    Unlike a good and deserving god, Kieth knows he can only insure obedience through punishment.
