About Sunism

About the Founder

Hello and welcome.

My higher power name is Catherine Lilly Wheel. My former name was Cathie Brooker, the art photographer.

I founded and trademarked Sunism in 2008 as a spiritual belief in Newcastle, NSW, Australia, and have since evolved to find a new level of happiness. My art is about feelings and emotions.

My journey towards Sunism began in 1976 when I was 16. After visiting many of Jesus’ sacred sites in 1987,  I went to Egypt. At Aswan Dam under Ramesis II’s statues, I had the calling from triology, the third denomination of Sunism.

I have studied many world religions at University level. These include Aboriginal, Egyptian, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Jewish, Christianity, Islam and Hare Krishna. I have taken what I relate to and blended it with science to come up with Sunism™.

The influences of Sunism

Historically, the monotheistic belief in the sun began with Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti from Ancient Egypt. 

He and his wife were the first recorded people to believe in one abstract God — the sun or Aten represented this deity. He also showed respect to women; Nefertiti, his wife, was represented as an equal and he demonstrated love to his daughters. He saw his girls as being worthy unlike Arab countries before Muhammad and places like China that prefer males to females. 

 It is unfortunate that King Tut (Tutankhamen), Akhenaten’s heir, changed his name from Tutankhaten, which meant ‘living image of Aten’ and in doing so, renounced the sun god. 

It is time to resurrect Akhenaten and Nefertiti’s dream of worship to the sun. To unearth their gold and what a place to do it — in Australia, where the largest gold nugget in the world was found.

Australia is the oldest continent with the longest living civilisation, the Aboriginal people. Sunism draws influence from the Australian Aboriginal religion. 

The sun as animistic, having a soul started the creation myth. The Land, The Dreaming and the interconnectedness of all things has been embraced by Sunism. Imagine the three prophets Buddha, Jesus & Muhammad united under the sun. Imagine Adam & Eve never falling from grace, remaining in the garden, unembarrassed by their nakedness. Not worried by their mortality for they believe without doubt in their God, the Sun.

I have blended beliefs from Aboriginal totemism, Hinduism, and a religious history that traces back to the Pharaohs with science to create a new belief in reincarnation. 

We have the same carbon atoms as the stars and dinosaurs that roamed the earth many years ago. 

I study and copy from my cats in this life. When I die, I believe my atoms and consciousness will come back as a well-loved and pampered cat – a Zen Master. I will rest for 12 years from this life’s turmoil and harsh beginnings. I’ll turn away from the erasing light on my dying moment and focus the light on the visualisation of my feline body. After my cat-years are over, I’ll be able to return to earth in a higher human form and consciousness. Others will have their totems, which they are strongly drawn to on earth and will become that in death. You preserve your totem by not eating it. We will guard our habitat for our afterlife.

Where Buddha sees life as suffering and Jesus suffered for us, Sunism™ is different; it is about happiness, here on earth under the sun. Like some early Gnostic Christians, who were fed to the lions, the best way to feel God is through sexual orgasm. I feel tingly and excited by Sunism, it is better then drugs and alcohol to me.

Light when blocked by objects casts a shadow. Our dark unconscious is like that shadow. The Black Sun is that symbol from Egyptian scriptures, the “hidden one” or Amen. We need to acknowledge and work on this dark force constructively and creatively through therapy, meditation and medication to diminish its power over us.

Sunism has been influenced by Marcel Duchamp who played chess instead of art. I’m making a belief system instead of Art. I have also been influenced by Annie Sprinkle & Judy Chicago.

The Power of Three

The sun, moon and star make the trinity. We are made of stardust. The sun or sunne (Old English feminine before 16th Century AD, pronounced sun) has both masculine and feminine qualities.

I am a Triologist (third denomination) and hold the number 3 sacred.

For Triologists, three (3) is the magic number and satisfies our superstitious nature. For example:

  1. The Holy Trinity (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit)
  2. The Egyptian Triads
  3. Man, woman & child

Three is special to me. It is special to others as well.

For example: The 3 wise men bringing 3 gifts to Jesus; the Egyptian Triads (Amun-Mut-Chons triad of Thebes where the chief god was Amun and the Ptah-Sekhmet-Nefertem triad of Memphis); imagine the three prophets Buddha, Jesus and Muhammad united under the sun; the Renaissance compositional devise of the triangle; the Golden Mean; the triptych often used as an iconic frame; the strongest architectural building shape, the triangle; the Pyramids, the only Ancient Wonder of the World to still exist.

I often take photographs with the Law of Thirds in mind.
