The Moirai (Moerae)-'' Decide Fates Or Person's Destiny''

The Moirai (Moerae), also referred to as the Fates, represent the idea of “destiny” in Greek mythology. The Ancient Greeks had a habit of creating deities to represent abstract concepts as a way of explaining their world. However, the Moirai do more than just represent destiny – they are the personification of it. It is understood that the Moirai controlled people’s lives in different ways from the time they were born to the time they died.

It is interesting to note that the word, Moirai, meant a portion or a part of a whole in Ancient Greek. The connotation here is that it referred to a portion of a bounty, as would be the case if people were to divide up a treasure. Thus, the Morai were seen as being keepers of a person’s destiny, or her specific allotment of life. Here’s more information about who the Moirai were and the role they played in Greek mythology.

Who the Moirai (Moerae) Were

It is largely understood that the Moirai, or the Fates, were three of the six children that Themis, the goddess of Justice, and Zeus, the king of the gods, had together. The other three children were the Horai, or the Hours. The names of the three Fates were Clotho, Lachesis, and Atropos. They each had their own, unique characteristics.

  • Clotho. She was known as the spinner because she “spun” the very thread of a person’s life. She spun the thread from her Distaff directly to her Spindle.
  • Lachesis – Once Clotho spun the thread, Lachesis would measure it for each person. Each person had different lengths of thread, indicated that they all had different life spans.
  • Atropos – She was responsible for cutting the thread, which indicates that she controlled when life would end. She also chose the way each person would die.

As you can see, Clotho was always associated with the beginning of life. She essentially created it by spinning the thread. Lachesis controlled the length of a person’s life, and Atropos was always associated with death. Thus, the three Fates essentially represent Birth, Life, and Death.

The Appearance of the Moirai

Unlike their siblings, the Horai, the Moirai were always depicted as ugly old women. Note that the Horai were always depicted as young, beautiful women. The Ancient Greeks appeared to have feared the Moirai. After all, one of the Fates (Moerae) were said to have controlled every aspect of a person’s life, including their death. As a result, most Ancient Greeks feared them and as a result, they imagined them with unflattering appearances. They were also depicted as crippled, stern, inflexible, and severe. They were usually depicted together as a group of three and they were often depicted with their objects. For instance, Clotho was usually shown with her spindle and Atropos was depicted with her cutting shears.

The Moirai, also referred to as the Fates, were an interesting part of Greek mythology. They were three of the children of Themis and Zeus and they were always associated with a person’s destiny.

''Understanding Different Dimensions Of Universe''

 

When someone mentions “different dimensions,” we tend to think of things like parallel universes — alternate realities that exist parallel to our own, but where things work or happened differently. However, the reality of dimensions and how they play a role in the ordering of our universe is really quite different from this popular characterization.

To break it down, dimensions are simply the different facets of what we perceive to be a reality. We are immediately aware of the three dimensions that surround us on a daily basis – those that define the length, width, and depth of all objects in our universes.

Beyond these three visible dimensions, It is believe that there may be many more. In fact, the theoretical framework of superstring theory posits that the universe exists in 10 different dimensions. These different aspects are what govern the universe, the fundamental forces of nature, and all the elementary particles contained within.

The first dimension, as already noted, is that which gives it length (i.e., the x-axis). A good description of a one-dimensional object is a straight line that exists only in terms of length and has no other discernible qualities.

Add to it a second dimension, height (i.e., the y-axis), and you get an object that becomes a two-dimensional shape (e.g., a square).

The third dimension involves depth (i.e., the z-axis), and it gives all objects a sense of the area and a cross-section. The perfect example of this is a cube, which exists in three dimensions and has a length, a width, a depth, and, therefore, also a volume.

Beyond these three lie the seven dimensions that are not immediately apparent to us, but that can still be perceived as having a direct effect on the universe and reality as we know it.

GETTING TO KNOW THE OTHER DIMENSIONS

It’s believe that the fourth dimension is time (we already know this one, for the most part), which governs the properties of all known matter at any given point. Along with the three other dimensions, knowing an object’s position in time is essential to plotting its position in the universe.

The other dimensions are where the deeper possibilities come into play, and explaining their interaction with the others is where things get particularly tricky for physicists.

According to string theory, the fifth and sixth dimensions are where the notion of possible worlds arises. If we could see on through to the fifth dimension, we would see a world slightly different from our own that would give us a means of measuring the similarity and differences between our world and other possible ones.

In the sixth, we would see a plane of possible worlds, where we could compare and position all the possible universes that start with the same initial conditions as this one (i.e., the Big Bang). In theory, if you could master the fifth and sixth dimensions, you could travel back in time or go to different futures.

In the seventh dimension, you have access to the possible worlds that start with different initial conditions. Whereas in the fifth and sixth dimensions the initial conditions were the same and subsequent actions were different, here, everything is different from the very beginning of time. The eighth dimension again gives us a plane of such possible universe histories, each of which begins with different initial conditions and branches out infinitely (that’s why they are called infinities).

In the ninth dimension, we can compare all the possible universe histories, starting with all the different possible laws of physics and initial conditions. In the tenth and final dimension, we arrive at the point at which everything possible and imaginable is covered. Beyond this, nothing can be imagined by us lowly mortals, which makes it the natural limitation to what we can conceive in terms of dimensions.

MAKING SENSE OF THE THEORY

The existence of these additional six dimensions that we cannot perceive is necessary for string theory in order for there to be consistency in nature. The fact that we can perceive only four dimensions of space can be explained by one of two mechanisms:

    1. The extra dimensions are compactified on a very small scale.
    2. Our world may live on a three-dimensional submanifold corresponding to a brane on which all known particles besides gravity would be restricted (a.k.a., brane theory).

If the extra dimensions are compactified, then the extra six dimensions must be in the form of a Calabi–Yau manifold. While imperceptible as far as our senses are concerned, they would have governed the formation of the universe from the very beginning. That’s why its believe that by peering back through time, using telescopes to spotlight from the early universe (i.e., billions of years ago), they might be able to see how the existence of these additional dimensions could have influenced the evolution of the cosmos.

Much like other candidates for a grand unifying theory (a.k.a., the theory of everything), the belief that the universe is made up of ten dimensions (or more, depending on which model of string theory you use) is an attempt to reconcile the standard model of particle physics with the existence of gravity. In short, it is an attempt to explain how all known forces (gravity, electromagnetism, the electromagnetic weak and strong force) within our universe interact and how other possible universes themselves might work.

''Human Connected To Universe''

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.

Our connection to the Earth – to Nature – is one of the most important connections humans have. Actually, it is the most important.

Without Nature, without the Earth, we would not exist. Period.

The Earth’s connection to the Sun – to our Solar System – is one of the most important connections our planet has.

Our Sun’s connection to the Galaxy is one of the most important connections our Solar System has.

Our Galaxy’s connection to the Universe, and beyond, is one of the most important connections our Galaxy has.

Our Universe’s connection to the mysteries beyond is one of the most important connections our Universe has.

Without this multi-level, inner-connection, nothing would exist. Period.

The Connection With Universe-

You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.- Buddha!!

Whatever happens to the Earth happens to us. If the planet heats up, we heat up. When the Earth changes its axis position, we change our axis position. We have long forgotten that the magnetic field inside our bodies lines up with the Earth’s magnetic field, and when the Earth’s magnetism shifts, we physically shift with it.

In the same way, the massive and diverse Universe, with its trillions of galaxies and solar systems, influences everything in the same way to assure stability and balance.

The Earth provides our well being through its well being. Our Sun secures the Earth’s well being through its well being. Our Solar System and our Galaxy’s well being remain stable through the Universe’s well being … and on and on beyond the outer limits of our known Universe.

This connection is why your physical body and all life on Earth have such extraordinary resiliencies.

Like The Human Body

All the planets in our Solar System are in constant motion. Like the human body, all planets resonate, they circulate heat, and they move around a central sun.

Like humans, the Solar System produces energy, it circulates heat, and it moved around a central Galaxy.

Just like you, the Galaxy resonates, it circulates heat, and it moves around a central Universal core.

So you see, every human being, each planet, every sun and star, and each galaxy travels at its own pace and on its own track. Everything in this vast Universe is in its own little world.

Yet ….

We are all connected. We all move together in a fine-tuned and very precise symphony.

 

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.

The next time you feel isolated, different, or possibly “superior” to any other form of life, think about this connection. Humans are but a small piece of a massive creation.

 

Changes in the Universe affect our Galaxy. Changes in our Galaxy effect our Solar System. Changes in our Solar System affect the Earth. And changes in our planet affect human beings – both are the same yet individual.

 

Learn to balance your self because this will keep you connected to mysteries far beyond the Universe.

''My Religion Is Humanity''

Humanity is the true religion of mankind. There is no difference among the people. All are like you and me. All belong to the one category that is human, the human race. Without humanity or the feeling of kindness, a human could indulge in any negative activities within the society.

Buddha once said, “Rule your mind or it will rule you.

Negative qualities which man without humanity is like, start telling lies. Inculcate the habit of stealing others property. Always jealous of others and try to harm people around him and so on.

“Anything that helps to unite all and develop pure divine love and universal brotherhood, is Dharma. Anything that creates discord, split and disharmony and foments hatred, is Adharma. Dharma is the cementer and sustainer of social life. The rules of Dharma have been laid down for regulating the worldly affairs of men. Dharma brings as its consequence happiness, both in this world and in the next. Dharma is the means of preserving one’s self.

My Religion (Dharma) Is Humanity-

It is a fact, Religions today no longer serve the purpose for which they came into existence. The very basic theme of each religion was to teach, how to love each other and bring us closer to ourselves and to God. Today the opposite is happening, Religions are not uniting but dividing us. Forget the differences from religion to religion, each now has so many divisions. The biggest problem Religions are bringing in is Fundamentalism and intolerance, giving birth to Fanatics, who are ready to destroy our freedom, just in the name of religion.

It is about time, to rectify our vision, rectify our way of life, and mold them into what the various religions originally desired. Humanity is the religion which all religions preach, so why not follow it as such, with just a few basic themes to practice and follow in our day to day lives:-

  1. God has sent us as a visitor to this planet Earth, with a Visitor’s visa, having a fixed expiry date. So live and enjoy your stay as a visitor, rather than amassing wealth and trying to become a permanent resident. Remember, this visa is a single entry, non-renewable and non-endorsable.
  2. Love is the only baggage you are allowed to bring and the only baggage you can take back. All remaining things which you acquire during your visit, you have to leave them behind. The more love you can carry the more valuable you become, as in His Kingdom, beings are valued and honored by the amount of love they possess.
  3. To make our visit enjoyable, God gives us a family network, father, mother, brothers & sisters. As charity begins at Home, we should learn and practice to share that baggage of love with the family. Once that is achieved, we can move forward to share our love with friends, associates, co-workers etc.
  4. United we stand, divided we fall, imagine if the World could be one, no Religions, no borders, no wars. The basics all begin at home, if the family can stand as one, that will be the beginning. If brothers & sisters learn to love and live in harmony, that is the beginning.
  5. No matter what, we cannot change our present destiny. So what is the need to rush in our day to day lives, why to have the desire to get more than what we are destined for? Let’s do whatever we do today with full sincerity and leave the results to God, and to the fruits of our actions. Our destiny of tomorrow depends on our actions of today.
  6. Peace is within us, Love is within us, God is within us. That means, God is Love, Love is God, and the understanding of this truth gives us that internal Peace.
  7. When a child is born, the only thing he/she knows is love. The rest we teach, hatred, jealousy, greed, even terrorism. The biggest up-bringing we can give our children is that of love. A loving atmosphere in our home is the biggest foundation we can give to our children. We do not have the power to change their destinies, as each’s destiny is pre-ordained by God.
  8. The power we do have is that of Love, as this is within us. As every parent wants the best for each of his children, with a loving upbringing we certainly can chart the same destiny for all of them, a destiny of Love, Peace, and Happiness.
  9. As we sow, so shall we reap, this is the age-old saying, but how true!

Sow seeds of Hatred and reap tons of Hatred

Sow seeds of Jealousy and reap tons of Jealousy

Sow seeds of Terror and reap tons of Terror

So why not sow seeds of Love and reap tons of Love!

Love is not something which can be given by force, but Religions, as they stand today, are given by force, by parents to children. Anything given by force can never have fruitful results. Love is realized from within, with loving actions, loving emotions, and loving feelings, and the results are always fruitful. On the other hand, Religions given by force can turn us into what we are not, and take us miles away from God and Humanity.

Humanity truly stands out as a religion of Love, Peace, and Happiness

The only force in this is the force of Love!

As God is Love and Love is God

There is nothing else down here or above

Just the force of Love!

And the desire to be human, the desire to love and be loved

So let’s embrace Humanity and begin a new way of life.
