  1. I was talking in a general manner, not specific examples or anything that you did. Just some general guidelines, I didn't claim that martial arts would a form of occultism. That's good to hear! I have learned about the use of relaxation techniques in a Prayer and Life Workshop, that I did a while ago.
  2. I am not familiar with martial arts. But speaking in a general sense, there's nothing wrong with physical training and self-discipline, and neither with defending yourself. The body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and taking care of yourself is also a form of respect. Physical and mental discipline are good, and can help one to better serve God. Anyways the first commandment always apply. One mustn't put anything above God, whether it's some occult spirit or even oneself (i.e. Narcissism), because nothing except God can lead to supreme happiness. Clearing your mind and getting relaxed doesn't necessarily counts as prayer by itself, but can help you to get in a better mindset for praying. By being calm prayer can be much more fruitful than while agitated and unfocused.
  3. Merry Birthiversary!

      You're welcome very much.

  4. I think that it's important to get to some place where you are received well, and that's loyal to God, then try to get involved and helping people with events and stuff there. Plus it's better to get guidance of those who are already experienced. But more importantly, it's necessary to understand that Truth is more than just a concept, it's a living person who wants to have an active role in your life if so you allow, as God respects one's will. There are certain aspects of the faith that you only actually learn when you live through it, life experience is important.
  5. I am really sorry to hear. I would suggest to divert your attention from the source of the problem, and try to concentrate on something that you like. It's out of your hands now, and it's better to leave it on the hands of God. I am not familiar with Hinduism, so there isn't much that I can help with that. But in a general sense, I would say that learning about it IRL appears to be a better approach to me, since the religious experience is something that happens outside the Internet. What I mean here is to try reading some book or look for someone in person in order to learn. I don't know anything about the subject to be more specific, sorry. At any rate, I am praying for you. Take care
  6. For the people that you mentioned, concepts like "diversity" and "equality" don't mean what they would normally mean. They are buzzwords to justify whatever agenda they want to justify. The idea that people are equal actually comes from Christianity, and here it means that everyone is created in the image of God (not the other way around), their life is valuable, they have the same dignity, are as much sons of God as each other, and have the same fundamental rights. All of this regardless of condition or place of birth, gender, age, beliefs, or anything else we would use to segregate people. This doesn't mean that everyone has a the same skills, ideas, tasks, or just behave on the same way. Each individual don't have everything they need to live, it's necessary to depend upon others and to assist others too, and be understanding of their limitations. God gives different talents and gifts to each person, so each one can contribute with their part. That's what "diversity" actually means. Here I am not talking only about skill sets, God made men and women each one with their own attributes so they can complement each other, instead of being at odds against each other. Both are important, in their own way, to the project of God. I am emphasizing this matter specifically because one of the main tactics of the evil to attack the project of God is to blur the differences between men and women, or even pretend that they don't exist. Implying that someone is guilty of something just because of something like their skin color, gender, or religion is the actual prejudice here, and it goes against God. It puts people against each other, it divides, which is what the Devil does the best. And this applies to everyone, if it's wrong to have prejudice of black people, it's the same for having prejudice of white people. One person just can't be blamed, or respond to, for the mistakes of others. To respond to your question, evil people hate God because the light of God exposes them. You need to get rid of your sins in order to be in harmony with God, however they want to worship themselves in the place of God. It's pride, pure and simple.
  7. I am sorry to hear. Even Jesus himself was prosecuted, and he warned that we (Christians) would also be prosecuted in his name. But God is always guiding us in some form or another, and everything in the end concurs for the good of those who love him.
  8. Everyone is welcome here By the way, I am Catholic too.
  9. Merry Christmas to you, friend!

  11. I missed the status you left on my feed some time ago, I am really sorry. I have responded to it :)

  12. Happy Pentecost! Thank you, @PiratePony . Today at my church I had a nice surprise. There's an old lady of our community who I visit sometimes, she is sick so she couldn't come much to church. However today she managed to come, and she sit next to me. She really likes coming, and I am really glad for her.
  13. How's it going, my Friend? :)

      Oh, sorry, I had completely missed your message... Anyways, I am still helping a PhD student at the laboratory, while still working towards my post-doc.

      My father had a surgery on the thyroid last week. It went well, and he is at home recovering.

  14. Thank you very much! Hopefully it should be a great week, I like this time of the year.
