THIS DEFINES THE FORCES THAT SHAPE OUR LIVES.
In 1949, A White Man raped my 14 yr old Mother. Deemed Neglected Children, she was Exiled to the Qld Border & I to Bomaderry Mission. There I was imbued with a strict code of HONESTY, Self-DISCIPLINE & LOVE OF GOODNESS in my training as A DOMESTIC SERVANT. There was no disrespect, disobedience, lies or SHIRKING OF RESPONSIBILITIES. When I was 6 yrs old I was adopted by a Colonial White Couple who UPROOTED all The Good CULTIVATED in me by My White "Creator Beings".
Words can't express the Horrors of THE WORD MADE FLESH turning MY WORLD Upside Down; a new "home" & NAME (ie: Shadow Self & REFLECTION) & a NEW religion that ENFORCED the Use my RIGHT hand.
THIS SWITCHED & SPLIT MY BRAINS, CHAINING ME TO THE OPINION of Sir Walter Baldwin Spencer, that half-castes weren't much better than animals. Thus SCIENCE Classified Me & Mine "BELONGING TO the genus Pan Troglodyte". THE WORD "opinion" means: "a view or judgement formed that is not necessarily based on FACT or KNOWLEDGE".
BALDWIN SPENCER'S OPINION CONDEMNED ME to be stripped of My Humanity & FORCED TO REMAIN A CHILD, DOMINATED by parents who INTERPRETED HIS OPINION literally, & ensured MY NEOCORTEX WOULDN'T DEVELOP by denying friendships outside of school hours, REDUCING my "life" to HELL behind Closed Doors & cleaning a bank after school till 9 pm. THANKFULLY, when I was 10, THE NUNS at school persuaded them to alIow me to attend Saturday morning art classes.
In 1992 I taught myself to dot paint & began the laborious task of FINDING & piecing together the scattered pieces of My MIND to become My Own Psychologist. In 2014 I began RE-EDUCATING myself on the ETYMOLOGY of English Words & THE ORIGIN of Palindromic Cultural DOGMA, ie: "am god", CAUSING Palindromic Sequence on A DOUBLE-STRANDED DNA. A palindromic sequence is a nucleic acid sequence on double-stranded DNA or RNA wherein reading 5' (five-prime) to 3' (three prime) forward on one strand MATCHES the sequence reading 5' to 3' on THE COMPLEMENTARY STRAND with which IT FORMS A DOUBLE HELIX. NB: 3 SYMBOLIZES The Trinity & 5 SYMBOLIZES the INDIVIDUAL PARTS of our ancient REPTILIAN Brain & Cerebellum (LITTLE Brain) SERVING The Trinity.
Most INTELLIGENT People understand that continual abuse CAUSES The Mind to become like a Broken Record, incessantly REPEATING ONE PART of a song, until THE OWNER manually Lifts the Mechanical Arm & STOPS IT.
UNEDUCATED & ABUSED PEOPLE LEARN TO ADAPT & SURVIVE USING THEIR ANCIENT REPTILIAN BRAIN. IT HAS NO SENSE OF MORALS, Law & Oder & NEVER LEARNS from its Mistakes. This LEGACY OF THE PAST is all they've ever known.
VERBAL ABUSE LEAVES NO VISIBLE WOUNDS & REDUCES The Mind to a DISABLED Nervous Wreck that can't ARTICULATE its problems, which increase EXPONENTIALLY over time. When A WEAK, SENSITIVE, INOFFENSIVE CHILD is exposed to constant PHYSICAL ABUSE combined with MENTAL TORTURE FOR THE DURATION OF ITS DEVELOPMENT TO ADULT STATUS, he or she is reduced to THE STATE OF A LOST SOUL DEPRIVED OF AN ADULT MIND.
My WHITE IDENTITY & MIND (ie:"Shadow Self" & REFLECTION of my environment) COLLAPSED under the Weight of Parental + Public OPINION & DISINTEGRATED.
This FORCED me to ACCEPT MYSELF as an Aboriginal & RETURN TO MY BEGINNING with My White "Creator Being", Sister Mavis Kennedy,whose FORESIGHT prepared me for Adulthood. HER LOVING TRAINING TAUGHT ME TO WORK & "DO WITHOUT" LIKE AN ADULT FROM MY INFANCY, SAVING ME from The FATE of those Less Fortunate.
My ATTENTION is Focused on Welding MY 2 SELVES (The Government = "god" & White Society + The Opposition LABOUR PARTY = I, The ABORIGINAL) & Make them ONE Being, ie: A BRAIN SUBSERVIENT to ME (The Body) & MY Needs - GUIDED BY "SISTER KENNY'S" SIMPLE FAITH & SUPERB TRAINING METHODS.
HER WORDS EMPOWER ME TO CREATE ORDER from chaos by THE GENTLE & SOOTHING ART OF SELF-DISCIPLINE we call Dot Painting. IT RECONNECTS ME TO THE DREAMING (THE ETERNAL NOW) where Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow DON'T EXIST.
