The mind is everything. What you think you become.
Yes, the mind is everything. Sometimes, I look at this fortune and think to myself: I can do anything I want to! I can be successful!
Other times, I feel like I'm reading the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, which has things like, "Then the Seer abides in Itself, resting in its own True Nature, which is called Self-realization."
Other times, I wonder about the grammar in the second sentence. What I think I become? Why not just become?

Investigate new possibilities with friends. Now is the time!
I wonder what kind of possibilities I should investigate with friends. Of course, something innocent, like, oh, I don't know. Travel. Maybe opening a business. Or maybe after having lots of alcoholic beverages, my mind can travel down dangerous and risque places. Which I don't think my friends would want to investigate with me. (ok, now I must get my head out of the gutter...)
This is why fortunes are so much fun to read!
And about me--I like to eat. Sometimes, I go to places where I get a fortune cookie at the end of the meal, so this is a collection of the fortunes that I have saved (and not lost), as well as some of the fortunes that my dinner companions discarded at the end of our meals together.
