In 1949 my crippled 14yr old Mother was raped by A WHITE MAN. Declared as Neglected Children, Authorities exiled her, Classified me as a subhuman Primate & sent me to Bomaderry Mission, which Enforced A STRICT CODE of Honesty, self discipline, self respect, self reliance & love of goodness. This home Was MY ROCK of Ages. There was NO Disrespect, Disobedience, Lies, Shirking of Responsibilities, Pretence or Arrogance. Adoption created CHAOS from Order. My White parents ripped out all The Good Instilled in Me & Replaced it with LIES & The Worst Forms of Abuse. In her youth, my mother was close friends with the notorious criminal, Darcy Dugan.
WORDS can't express The HAVOC Caused by THE WORD MADE FLESH - A New Name, parents, home & Religion that Forced Me to Use My Right Hand. This SWITCHED & SPLIT my brains into 4 Entities - A False Persona, My Aboriginal Soul, My Spirit & My Self-Image. In effect, MY LITTLE SELF, Mute with Terror, remained conscious; locked up in my Right Mind, ENSLAVED TO THE EGO of My Superiors. My Left-brain, Seat of My Aboriginal soul with NO Knowledge, was AWAKENED & Forced to ACT LIKE a Trained Monkey by THE WORD & Collective Beliefs of The Government, Religion & Society. I was Condemned to Wander For The Term of My Natural Life in a Spiritual Desert - Afraid, Alone & Deprived of what Their Ignorant Children Enjoyed.
Like a Hunted Animal I Relied on My Cetacean Brain & HOMINID Perception to Read my parents & Their Motives. My Limbic System, Seat of The PRIMEVAL Egyptian Serpent god AMEN, caused Chaos in my OPPRESSED State of Mind, ACTIVATED BY WORDS & Word + Image Association. IT didn't Question THE WORD & was Bound to Obey His Master's Voice. This is MURDER OF THE MIND by Verbal & Physical Abuse, Mental Torture & Deprivation of Human Rights which SUPPRESSED the development of my Neocortex. I became Clumsy, Desensitized, Mentally Detached, Developed Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Anxiety Disorder & Metathesis. I Saw & Did things Back to Front which made me an object of ridicule to my parents. The word Name means Shadow Self or REFLECTION of One's Environment. My Aboriginal Soul Opposed IT & refused to accept IT because IT wasn't ME, which increased my problems exponentially.
I can't accept this deified Egyptian 'god' Hu, ie: Authoritative Speech, amalgamated with other Near Eastern gods, was worshiped for millennia by Learned Men & Scribes. This Lesser 'god' - Judgmental, Critical & Dissatisfied with ITS Imperfect Creation - continually demands perfection of me, but all it can offer is Empty Words & Unfulfilled Promises. IT has never served my needs & has Never been Good Enough for me.
LIFE knocked me off my perch, Destroyed my "Tower of Babel", ie: my White Persona cum Mind & brought me crashing down to Earth & Reality. LIFE taught me that I am just a Child of Nature & no matter how hard I try, I can't be "perfect" or "divine" because I belong to the Earthly Mammalian World of Flesh & Blood. I can't Change The World - but I can Change My Inner World.
3 years ago I DECIDED to Reprogram My Brains. I read & copied texts from Internet Archives, printing the words like a child & read them repeatedly to reinforce them. This shut down The Government's god-awful BLUEPRINT For My Life & ITS Mental Program instituted by Ignorance. Self-Education Released my Unconscious Mind from The Grip of Terror & The Horrors of Non-Existence Betwixt The Living & The Dead. Thus My Demonized Soul Finally accepted me, Removed The World of THE DEAD from my shoulders & Restored Me To Consciousness & My RIGHT MIND.
I'm lucky that my life been Balanced to some extent by kind & caring INDIVIDUALS who Changed The Course of My Life. I'm happy to practice THE JOY OF FORGETTING & Embrace My Greatest Love - The Hidden Creator of LIFE ON EARTH in all its Splendor & Infinite Variety - My SOURCE OF LIFE, Peace & Pleasure.
