Have you ever wondered if fate plays a part in the life you are experiencing now? I do.
Wictionary defines Fate as:
- The cause, force, principle, or divine will that predetermines events.
- The effect, consequence, outcome or inevitable events predetermined by this cause.
- Destiny (perhaps connotes death, ruin, misfortune, etc.
Many religions view fate as preordained. In ancient
the unseen power that rules the
destinies of men was personified by the three sisters Moirai, or Fates,
whose names were Clotho,
Lachesis, and Atropos. Fate is sometimes described as having unlimited power
over gods and men, while at other
times the gods, especially Zeus, are described as the rulers of human destiny, or as having the power to
change the course of fate. Greece
With the Moirai the Romans identified their own Parcæ or Fata.
Various religions suggest fate is founded on the doctrine of God’s absolute decree and of predestination and that man exists under the weight of incalculable series of former lives. In essence, we are the product of our own Karma.
I wrote a very short horror story dealing with this very thing.
