    Can you feel the page turn in your life when some big change is coming your way? Have you learned to smell it on the wind?

    Just when youre feeling settled and comfortable something will start to go wrong and things will begin to unravel. There may come one disaster after the other, a trainload of misfortune.

    Why so much and why now?

    When these things come to us a life change is coming our way, the misfortune is pushing us to make that change happen. If you ignore the push, the misfortune continues, you must stop and listen and make that move. The move you KNOW will make things better for you but the move that you fear making most of all.

    Don't be afraid, make the change.

    Some humans are here on Earth to learn lessons and others are there to help teach them those lessons. All be it unknowingly. Many of us are oblivious to this order or who is the teacher and who is the student. And perhaps many are both. But some of those lessons are harsh and involve sufferring both watching and receiving it.

    If we were better students, there would not need to be so much sufferring. Those that suffer do so that the rest of us can learn. We must learn from the suffering of others and we must learn from our own. We must pass on all the lessons learned to those around us.

    So why?

    Why do we need to learn?

    Upon graduation we go to the next level. That is life.

    This human existence is just a low rung on a long ladder.

    lol, yes but only as 'spoof'. I once planned to write a book called 'The Spiritual penis' it was to be a self empowerment book for American women.

    Meanwhile, I don't usually feel the need to share 'life according to fossil'. I don't really know why atheists and theists feel the need to have everyone agreeable to their point of view. Agree to disagree I say.

    However, I have written this 'extract' as I figure some people bumble their way through life, missing opportuinites and ignoring the push and pull that is there to facilitate our advancement. So..I thought a little tip was in order to get the ball rolling on change.

    In essence...if your life is shit.........change it!

    or if you have to be resigned to the fact that your life is shit, pls realise that you still can change the colour and the consistency of said shit

    Well you can't change it once it's out there! You can only change it from within.

    well I shall bear that in mind should I decide to 'preserve' some. It would probably do really well at The Tate Modern.

    I could call it 'Change your shit'

    and get Dr Phil (or Oprah) to sponsor the unveiling.

    In fact preserved faeces was part of one of the best small exhibitions I've ever seen: Piero Manzoni's retrospective at [url=http://www.serpentinegallery.org/]The Serpentine Gallery. While the Merda d'artista was interesting, I preferred his Linea and Achromes. Fascinating stuff at my favourite small exhibition space in the world (despite the preponderance of pretentious, ponderous post-modernist pap in the bookshop).
