Hey Everyone! My name is MJ and I'm new to this forum. I'm a musician and I'm hoping to share my music with you, and hear from you about other baha'i musicians.
I"m currently working on a new Devotional record called "If We Could Only Catch a Glimpse" and I'm very excited! Here's a teaser video of one of my songs called "The Most Great Law":
"The Most Great Law" - YouTube
If you enjoy this song, I welcome you to pre-order the record by visiting "If We Could Only Catch A Glimpse" by MJ Cyr - GoFundMe !
Not only will you be getting a copy of the record on the release date, you'll also be helping offset the cost of this album, which will be a huge help to actually get it out!!
and while we're at it, feel free to listen to my previous devotional record, Canopy!! MJ Cyr | Canopy
hope you enjoy the music and looking forward to hearing from you!!

Dear young friend mjcyr
I listened to a little of three of your uploads, and I wish to encourage you to keep going, I feel you will go far, in your goal.
The more I see Young Baha'i youth and their talents, I feel happy and assured of the Blessed future of our faith.

I don't know if there are already a thread of this topic, but anyone knows any Scriptures that explain the Martial Arts? You know if it encourages violence, or it's just another type of sport. Please feel free to argue your opinion!
I think that some of them are good, but have others that it's so violent and people just win when the other is knocked out...

We are taught it is better to be killed than kill.
But if you wish to learn such an art for useful and peaceful reason, I feel there is nothing in our writings to forbid you, it is how you use such an art, this is the center of the matter.

"A hitherto untranslated Tablet from 'Abdu'l-Bahá, however, points out that in the case of attack by robbers and highwaymen, a Bahá'í should not surrender himself, but should try, as far as circumstances permit, to defend himself, and later on lodge a complaint with the government authorities. In a letter written on behalf of the Guardian, he also indicates that in an emergency when there is no legal force at hand to appeal to, a Bahá'í is justified in defending his life. In another letter the Guardian has further point out that the assault of an irresponsible assailant upon a Bahá'í should be resisted by the Bahá'í, who would be justified, under such circumstances, in protecting his life." -Letter from UHJ 1969-05-26
