A few weeks ago, I had an amazing dream. I dreamed I was in charge of a baby rhino. I had to feed the little guy, but I worried that the food I had in a can – similar to canned cat food – wouldn’t be enough to satiate the little guy. He was pink, and adorable, and it didn’t seem at all unusual to me at the time, that my charge was a creature who would grow to weigh a ton. I remember after I emptied the whole can in his bowl, I started scraping the meager remnants in the groves and tiny recesses. I discovered there was an entire meal left within the can I once thought was meager and emptied. There was no reason to worry. I had all the resources I would ever need to feed my hungry rhino.
Well, after I woke, I was walking around mystified by this dream. Here’s where the synchronicity becomes really clear and beautiful. A few days later, I listened to a free audio download I had received from a guy named Jerry Clark. I had no idea at the time that Jerry’s message centered around the concept of the rhinoceros as an animal of inspiration. His club, the Rhino’s Club, is for people who choose to live life largely, high rollers, risk takers, big talkers, and big game players. If you are a person who is afraid of change, a person who doesn’t like to take bigger risks to get bigger gains, you wouldn’t like this club. He calls it his Rhino club. In fact he is also known as Jerry DRhino! I was holding back the tears as I listened to his message, awed with the amazing web the universe had just woven around me.
Jerry’s message is that 95% of the world’s population are like cows. They like comfort, security, a steady paycheck, a life that doesn’t vary too much from the typical schedule. They prefer predictable excitement if any at all. In fact most people get their maximum excitement from the television or the movies. They don’t have to actively participate in the excitement, they just sit back and simply give up their time and consciousness, and leave the theatre or television with something new to talk about with the other cows back at the farm the next day. This is the farm where they all get their safe ration of hay and water, and some time out in the very familiar field where nothing new ever happens except maybe a thunderstorm every now and then, a new cow is born on occasion, and an old cow might pass away if it’s lucky enough to live to old age, that is. Some cows get married, some cows get divorced and the cycle continues. The same story is told over and over again.
The other 5% of the population are like rhinos.
“Rhinos live in home ranges that sometimes overlap with each other. Feeding grounds, water holes and wallows may be shared. The black rhino is usually solitary. The white rhino tends to be much more gregarious. Their sense of smell and hearing are very good. They have an extended “vocabulary” of growls, grunts, squeaks, snorts and bellows. When attacking, the rhino lowers its head, snorts, breaks into a gallop reaching speeds of 30 miles an hour, and gores or strikes powerful blows with its horns. Still, for all its bulk, the rhino is very agile and can quickly turn in a small space.” (quotation taken from http://www.awf.org/content/wildlife/detail/rhinoceros) You don’t want to mess too much with a rhino. They can be easily pissed off and can destroy anything in its wake. Rhinos aren’t the kind of animal that can be pushed around by a bullying boss or a corrupt system. The main message is that rhinos are mighty, powerful creatures that get what they want. They aren’t afraid of change or new territory. They are independent and brave. They forge their own paths. That’s why 5% of the world’s population have more going on for themselves in this life. They are the rhinos.
My dream was about my choice to leave the heard. I was shown that I could feed the baby rhino and nurture the natural impulse to rise above mediocrity, or I could believe in a world of scarcity and believe I am unable to give the rhino part of me what it needs to grow into a strong and powerful giant, forfeiting my life power into resembling that of a cow.
In my waking life I am employing daily meditations and EFT to break through from the shackles of mediocrity. I decided to feed the baby rhino. You have a baby rhino to feed too. Do the research. Learn about the Law of Attraction. Take back the power of your mind. Become the master of your thoughts. Stand firm against unconscious shit talk in your head. We are all plagued with it. Get pissed off like the rhino and stomp the crap out. Replace those lesser thoughts with your ideal imagining of what your life should be. Not what you think you deserve because that’s a bunch of bullshit too. You deserve to know that you are made of the stuff of God. Would God be happy with you squandering those riches? Hell no, God would be rooting for you to pick up your awareness of who you really are and patting you on your back when you finally do. Learn about resistance and overcome it with EFT. Check out Brad Yates on youtube. He’s amazing. Look up Carol Look, and buy her book. (how unconsciously Seussian of me) Use her methods daily, regularly, whenever something arises and makes you uncomfortable. You have the power of a rhinoceros! Let’s take back our world from the pathetic antics of the fearful ego. We are on the brink of realizing our true power and once we finally do, the world will look so different. We can put the pieces back together again. I love my baby rhino! Got to go feed him now.
