If you rely exclusively on the advice of others, you may make terrible mistakes. Your heart knows what you need. Other people have other agendas.
Love dissolves fear. When your intuitions, your gut-feelings, your spiritual heart all know beyond any doubt, do not be swayed by fear-based arguments of others. Sometimes meaning well, and sometimes not, they might lead you far astray from your joy.
The Three Ladies of Fate - Greek and Roman mythologies include three spiritual beings called in Greek the Moirai, in Latin Parcae or Fatae, who were supposed to control the destiny of a person. They were named (probably after Hesiod) Clotho, who held a distaff on which was the material of life; Lachesis, who spun the thread of material; and Atropos, who made that final cut of the thread which ended life. Clotho, who spun the threads of life; Lachesis, who measured them; and Atropos, who cut them.
Lachesis measured the threads, Atropos cut them. The cutting was not merely at the terminal end; the threads had to be started, too. So after Lachesis had analyzed, measured, and marked each potential life, on the endless thread Clotho spun, Atropos would cut and place it. The beginning of a cut thread was the conception of a baby; it had to be tied in to the threads of its parents before moving out its own course in the Tapestry. The physical, mental, and emotional qualities of a life were determined by heredity, provided by the parental tie-in, and its development was influenced considerably by environment. But its circumstance-the odd coincidences that governed every life-was arranged by Fate. Some excellently endowed lives were doomed to disappointment and failure, while some seemingly weak strands were destined for greatness. Lachesis planned these threads with an eye to the esthetics of the larger picture. Some she regretted, as when a thread had to be measured short, meaning that a child would die. But it had to be done, for stresses in the fabric of the Tapestry could distort the whole, and lead to the damage of many more innocent threads unless the correction was made in the key region.
It would not have been easy to explain to the average mortal why he should suffer, as the stresses were cumulative and subtle; indeed, there were generally several ways in which to given stress could be alleviated. But it was Lachesis' job to select a course and implement it, and this she did.
Fate is not all-powerful or sudden whims; Fate is merely needs to accomplish a purpose that mortal man is not properly equipped to appreciate.
Sometimes the three are called the Harsh Spinners, even though they do not all spin. Their spinning' was said to take place at birth, and in some periods also marriage, when new life or fate was made. The general word moirai means 'share' or 'apportioned lot'. Lachesis means approximately 'obtaining by lot' and astropos 'irresistible'.
The three witches in Macbeth have been linked with the three spinners, from the old English term weird, which means approximately 'destiny'; the three weird sisters' were the Fates who control destiny.
