THE FORCES THAT SHAPE OUR LIVES

IN 1949 A WHITE MAN RAPED MY 14 YR OLD MOTHER. I WAS TAKEN & SENT TO BOMADERRY. THERE I WAS IMBUED WITH A STRICT CODE OF HONESTY SELF DISCIPLINE & RESPECT. LIES, DISRESPECT, DISOBEDIENCE, SHIRKING OF RESPONSIBILITIES DIDN'T EXIST.

AT 6 YRS ADOPTION ERASED MY IDENTITY. A NEW NAME & RELIGION SPLIT MY SOUL, FORCING ME TO USE MY RIGHT HAND. "DUALITY" IRREVOCABLY CHANGED MY LIFE, REDUCED ME TO A "MONKEY" ONLY FIT FOR DOMESTIC SERVICE. ABUSE & LIES OVERTHREW MY MORAL TRAINING, OUTRAGED MY HONESTY & TURNED MY WORLD UPSIDE DOWN AS PREJUDICE & ABUSE LIMITED ME TO MY LEFT FOOT/LEFT BRAIN. MY NEW NAME/PERSONA (COMEDY/TRAGEDY MASK) WAS MY NEMESIS & ANIMUS; A HOSTILE SPIRIT TAKING ROOT IN MY INFANTILE MIND & FERTILE IMAGINATION. WITHIN 6 YEARS, IT TOOK POSSESSION OF ME & STOLE MY LIFE.

AT 7, I HELPED MY PARENTS CLEAN THE C'WEALTH BANK. AT 8, AFTER MY WORK WAS DONE, BOREDOM DROVE ME TO LEARN TO READ TIME MAGAZINE IN THE STAFF ROOM. AT 9, I WAS READING THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, READERS' DIGEST, NAT. GEO, ETC. AT 10, THE NUNS AT ST. MICHAEL'S TOLD MIN TO LET ME GO TO ART CLASSES.

IN 1987, COLLATERAL DAMAGE CAUSED A MID-LIFE CRISIS. IN 2005, I REJECTED MY "PARENTI" & RETURNED TO WHAT I LEARNT AT BOMADERRY. IN 2014, I DOWNLOADED FREE E-BOOKS FROM INTERNET ARCHIVES, EG: THE EGYPTIAN BOOK OF THE DEAD/G. MASSEY; AN AUSTRALIAN GRAMMAR/L.E. THRELKELD; MYTHOLOGY OF ALL RACES SEMITIC/STEPHEN LANGDON; 21 VOL ASSYRIAN DICTIONARY FROM CHICAGO'S ORIENTAL INSTITUTE & BOUGHT BILL MANLEY'S EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHS FOR COMPLETE BEGINNERS, "OPENING MY EYES" TO OUR WORDS IN SUMERIAN, OLD BABYLONIAN & OLD AKKADIAN, THE OLDEST KNOWN DEAD LANGUAGE & SACRED & LEARNED LANGUAGE OF RELIGION & LAW. "THE SACRED MAGIC OF ABRAMELIN THE MAGE" IS THE MOST EVIL BOOK IN THE WORLD; A JEWISH VERSION OF THE TEXTS OF EGYPT'S MAGE, ABRAHAM.

THE PATRIARCH ABRAM WAS AN AMORITE OF UR BABYLON, IN THE PERSIAN GULF, TENS OF 1,000'S OF YEARS BEFORE THE MUSLIMS & JEWS WROTE "HISTORY". OUR CULTURE GOES ALL THE WAY BACK TO A TIME "WHEN WE WERE ANIMALS"; ANTHROPOID APES, BABOONS & MONKEYS. SUN-SHINE COAST CLANS RAGED & CURSED THE DEAD & THEIR NAMES EACH DAY AT DAWN & SUNSET WITH "THE CRY OF THE DEAD FOR ½ AN HOUR, BECAUSE OF THE HARM THEY DID TO THE LIVING. THIS CUSTOM WAS RECORDED IN EGYPTIAN TEXTS & TOMB PAINTINGS OF PRIMEVAL THEIR ANCESTORS, VERIFIED IN TOM PETRIE'S REMINISCENCES OF EARLY QUEENSLAND (DATING FROM 1837) - "THE MURRIS" OF NORTHERN NSW & QLD, WHO LOVED TOM & TREATED HIM "LIKE A PRINCE".

MOTHER EARTH IS OUR LIVING CATHEDRAL, HER SUFFERING, SORROW & POWER IS GREATER THAN ANYONE'S, REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE HAVE BEEN LED TO BELIEVE BY THE ARROGANT. THE LAWS OF OUR CREATOR BEINGS WERE PRESERVED ORALLY IN THE DREAMING & BASIS OF OUR SOCIETY, IE: SOCIAL CONTROL; LAND MANAGEMENT; TERRITORIAL RIGHTS, DIVISION OF LABOUR, HUNTING & GATHERING & KINSHIP LAWS (MOIETIES OR "SKIN" GROUPS/CLAN BLOOD LINES) TO AVOID INBREEDING. THEY FORBADE CREATION OF IMAGES OF THEM IN HUMAN OR TOTEMIC FORM, GAVE US SACRED SYMBOLS TO REPRESENT THEM IN SACRED ART & BADE US TO PRESERVE THEIR CREATION. AFTER COMPLETION OF CREATION, THEY SANK INTO THE EARTH & DIED. THEIR SPIRITS INHABIT THE EARTH & ITS CREATURES (TOTEMS) AS THE TUTELARY GUARDIANS OF EARTH, NATURE & US.

LIFE & PAINTING MADE ME SEE THAT I CAN'T CHANGE THE PAST. DOT PAINTING OPENED THE GATES TO ETERNITY & EA, MY MULTI-DIMENSIONAL SOUL OF LIFE, "THE SOLVER OF SECRETS" WHO ENFORCED MENTAL SILENCE & TRAINED ME TO FOCUS MY ATTENTION ON HIS ABDOMINAL BRAIN & "CPU" - CHTHONIC POWERS OF RACE MEMORY THAT MOVED ME TO "MOVE MOUNTAINS" OF RUBBISH & FILTH DUMPED ON ME BY CHURCH, STATE & PARENTS. HE DISGUISED & SPLIT HIMSELF INTO "FEATHER FOOT"; A MAN OF HIGH DEGREE TO RETRAIN, DISCIPLINE & PUNISH ME WHEN I ERRED. HE SLEW DRAGONS WITH "TONGUES OF FIRE" THEY CALLED INTO BEING & INITIATED ME INTO ADULTHOOD BY TERRORIZING & UTTERLY DESTROYING THE WEAK, IGNORANT & HELPLESS PUPPET THEY CREATED TO DESTROY "THE ME", HIS STOLEN CHILD.
