Osho Ah, This!, Chapter 1
The Zen master in this card has harnessed the energy of fire and is able to use it for creation rather than destruction. He invites us to recognize and participate with him in the understanding that belongs to those who have mastered the fires of passion, without repressing them or allowing them to get destructive and out of balance. He is so integrated that there is no longer any difference between who he is inside and who he is in the world outside. He offers this gift of understanding and integration to all those who come to him, the gift of creative light that comes from the center of his being.
The King of Fire tells us that anything that we undertake now, with the understanding that comes from maturity, will bring enrichment to our own lives and to the lives of others. Using whatever skills you have, whatever you have learned from your own life experience, it is time to express yourself.

I have been away in Sunny New York so I have a) neglected this blog and b) was able to hold off the demon of SAD for a minute...... so I decided to repost this from an old blog, but i am not entirely cheating as I have added a few more bits.
This is not photosensitiser like the other citrus oils.
It is excellent and is an antidepressant, and uplifts the spirits instantly.
I have found that benefits of this oil for SAD or low spirits and shock are profound.
True Melissa is very expensive and can cause severe irritation to the skin, therefore it is recommended that a very low dosage is applied such as 1% and this must be diluted in oil before being
applied to a bath. There are much more affordable Melissa blends which are more commonly found than the true Melissa oil.
You can mix lime, and grapefruit together as a blend of 4:3 drops in a bath or 5:5 drops to 60mls in a massage blend. As stated before blend Melissa with a carrior oil such as almond or grapeseed oil before applying to a bath.
*Never use essential oils undiluted on the skin.
*Do not overuse essential oils less is more.
*Not all essential oils are suitable for use in aromatherapy
*Never let children use essential oils -unless supervised.
* Essential oils should not be taken internally, (although this is practised with therapeutic-grade oils by some aromatherapists).
*Essential oils are flammable
* True essential oils should have latin names stated, otherwise you are using a cosmetic grade oil with no properties.
All citrus oils are *Photosensiters so exposure to sunlight should be limited for 24 hours where it has been applied to the skin.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Anyway thats my argument and in the spirit of MA AT here is an article on Vandalism and graffiti
By: Patrick Omari
As the train pulls into London Victoria train station and commuters arrive for another day's work in the city, those that look out of the window will notice an abundance of 'tags' that adorn the carriages and walls. There will be many reactions to these pieces of art ranging from appreciation of the skill involved to disgust at the lack of respect for private property. Whether you love or hate graffiti and the various forms of graffiti art, the main issue that critics raise is that it is illegal and the artist is therefore a criminal.
The most famous of all graffiti artists is the notoriously elusive Banksy. His pieces are generally satirical statements and his targets have ranged from Disney to the Mona Lisa. The so-called 'guerilla art' that Banksy is responsible for has become hugely popular with the general public as well as with art-buying celebrities including Angelina Jolie and Christina Aguilera. At Sotheby's in 2007, three of his works fetched a combined total of 170,400 pounds with one piece alone selling for over 100,000. Banksy reacted to this growing popularity by adding the following comment to his own website 'I Can't Believe You Morons Actually Buy This S***.' Enough said.
As the most high-profile graffiti artist in the UK today, Banksy's work encourages many copycats and aspiring contemporaries. However, for every Banksy there will be so many more graffiti artists that lack the creativity, wit and skill to produce 'art' and so their stylings will be regarded solely as a nuisance. Can we really set one rule for Banksy and another for a young kid spraying his name on the side of someone's house? Critics will point to the fact that graffiti is criminal damage and its artistic merits are irrelevant to the argument.
The law surrounding graffiti is far more black-and-white than people's reactions to it. Banksy's murals spark debate wherever they appear and moreso due to the high value that the pieces now achieve at auction. In a London street, council workers recently whitewashed a Banksy original after some residents complained. One council spokesman commented that 'it's graffiti and we treat it that way' proving that if residents complain then the 'art' will be removed.
The law denotes that graffiti is criminal damage and the maximum sentence if convicted is 10 years imprisonment. The severity of this sentence indicates how seriously the government considers graffiti to be, and the impact it will have on the wider community. Residential areas with excessive levels of graffiti will often be associated with neglect and poverty. However inaccurate or accurate this assumption may be, it is believed that when graffiti has been removed quickly then it is less likely to reappear. People take pride in where they live and should not have to suffer for someone else's art.
It is hard to associate Banksy with the graffiti artists that spray poorly designed and conceived logos on bus shelters and shop windows across the country. But we must compare them as they adopt the principles that constitute the fundamental qualities of graffiti. However much we appreciate the intelligence behind the design and the skill in its execution, graffiti is in its very nature a criminal act and little more.
