Fortune cookies with sayings for the future
Many myths surround the history of the fortune cookie. One of them takes us to Japan. The Omikuji lottery oracle is extremely popular in the Far Eastern country. Those looking for an answer to a specific fate or who simply want some luck get their prediction on the rolled up paper note: Am I going to have good luck, bad luck or something in between?
Fortune cookies with sayings for the future shouldn’t be understood so specifically. Basically it’s not about the fortune cookie predicting the future. The sayings in the fortune cookie should really encourage contemplation and ensure reflection on specific events in one’s own life.
Do fortune cookies predict the future?
Everyone has hopes, wishes and dreams, that’s what makes us human. The future is a blank canvas: Will our wishes be fulfilled? The future is unknown! Why not take a look into the future? Because it’s not so easy, as this frequently used quote accurately describes: “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future!” It’s unsure who said this. Some say Mark Twain; others say Winston Churchill, or even Karl Valentin. Whoever it was, it conveys the uncertainty about what the future holds. And it is precisely this uncertainty that releases the desire in all of us to have clarity.
Fortune cookies that carry a message for the future are therefore especially interesting. Everyone wants to know what pearl of wisdom the fortune cookie will give them to take away.
Even those that don’t believe the fortune cookie’s content will inevitably wonder how the fortune cookie saying might be interpreted for their own future.
Positive words for the future make us feel good; they build us up and motivate us. Of course the content shouldn’t be simply trusted or believed one hundred percent. Fun is quite clearly front and certain when reading the fortune cookie predictions. But there is a grain of truth in every quote or saying and it can be food for thought for the future.
The message serves as a reference and perhaps gives an answer or food for thought that might influence the future at little at least.
