Fortune Cookie Tarot

The Social Meme

At the end of a recent dinner, I was unceremoniously handed a fortune cookie.

As per the usual parlance, the ceremony for those that I partook the meal with was that the fortunes would be read aloud and serendipidously commented on, talked and joked about, and otherwise ignored, and that’s the fun of it.

Usually with some randomness, the fortunes include such wisdom about true friendship “There is a true and sincere friendship between you and your friends” or ones outlook on life “You find beauty in ordinary things, do not lose this ability”, and the general feel good topic “It takes more than good memory to have good memories.”

But these post agape parting shots have a fortune telling nature, they are a means to take us, in a short sentence, from where we are now to another space.  Little sweet bits of wisdom to take away from the table.  A humorous edible fortune teller, that at the crack of its cookie shell, reminds us that we are beautiful, or to plan ahead for something great. The implied message is for the future, just after dinner, just following our last crunch of cookie, or at some indeterminate point down the line. The point is in the message, the small prediction delivered with such surety that you know, just know without a doubt, that what it has to say will come true.

And why not? Any idea placed in the crucible of the mind is capable of manifestation. Even in its simplest expression, you will have a “thrilling time in your future”, or that “something you lost will soon turn up”.

These are meme’s of expression, subliminally placed into your subconscious that have a way of becoming like one of those electronic text display boards that run electronic messages endlessly in their crimson bulb furiosity. The Fortune Cookie Tarot becomes something that you unconsciously look forward to happening. Meme‘s, by the way, are little cultural ideas transferred from one mind to another. Not telepathy, but subconscious pick ups from the chatter and noise from the information around us.

These Fortune Cookie Tarot meme’s are little positive affirmations that help to shape your perception of the future reality to which you embark upon following the feast that you just got up from. A little wonderment to leave the table with.

And what a wonderful thing that is.

Following my dinner out, as I opened my fortune cookie to absorbed the little message, I was dumbstruck. The meme given was a wonderful message, truly a Fortune Cookie Tarot like prediction, one that I couldn’t help to look forward to in my future.

The message read:

You will soon witness a miracle.

The fortune cookie is a form of magickal expression, a way to insert a little subliminal message into your subconscious to alter your present perspective.  A synaptic alchemical catalyst, something even the most stalwart of us can prevent from happening.
