Accepted Answer
Gnostics strive towards balance and fulfilling the will of divinity. Anything else is conjecture. Also:
The Gnostic places all of his longings in the hands of his Innermost. -Samael Aun Weor

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami

Do you guys think that using fitness as a way of strengthening the body is against divinity? I see many athletes, martial artists and military men use extreme techniques to create super human strength. My point is that if one is in an extreme situation like a war scenario were one must defend the country or land from invaders, then one must sometimes resort to extreme methods. My question is do these methods used by various warriors/martial artists are considered monstrous or abominations by our divinity? Samuel Aun Weor says that athletes like circus performers, boxers, football players are in the sphere of the underworld but what if one has to become a brute not because one chooses too but because life, destiny or fate forced you to take that path? I would appreciate some insights brothers and sisters.
