Whatever Society a Rhino wants to experience, We always try to brush up on what’s expected in the Swirl of Daily Events.
After We get all la-di-dahed, We can then decide if We like the Etiquette of the Company We’re courting.
So often We reappraise our Desires.
Ladders are often helpful in a Crisis, mostly because there are only two possible directions the Ladder goes.
Unfortunately, Up and Down cover the main options, but there is often no more information on hand, nor meaningful guidance.
We Rhinos can dither ourselves silly though, doing nothing. But get this! Going nowhere often seems to work all right. Happily.
The Most like a Rock is a Rock, obviously. Rhinos find Rocks informative and stimulating. We try to model ourselves on Rocks, but Rhinos vacillate too much; We try one Idea and then another. We wonder about stuff. We are too impatient.
Rocks are entirely into consistency. No opinions or considerations or modifications, just Rockness. 100% Rock.
Rocks are no good for conversation, but Rhinos find them admirable. No apologies, no shilly-shallying. Perhaps Rocks have the right idea? Certainly, Rhinos find ourselves most content when We stop Doing and just Are Rhinos.
Some quotations are wonderfully satisfying. And so extraordinarily useful. Comforting, even.
(BTW, there is argument about the legitimacy of this quote, but We will credit Benjamin Franklin, unless somebody knows better.)
YIR likes to play fair.
On August 5, 642 AD, Penda of Mercia and Oswald of Bernicia met for the Battle of Maserfield. To this day, nobody knows what the problem was, why they both felt Thrashings were needed, or where exactly everybody fought. Oswald was killed. Nothing specific happened as a result.
And from this story We Rhinos learn what? We are just glad We were not there at the time.
Rhinos, like every other critter, are provided with a Guidance System, Nature’s GPS, not just for navigating terrain, but better still, for figuring out how to handle matters, of whatever Dimension.
Sometimes Rhinos get overwrought and forget just how convenient the System is. Why have a Frenzy when We could get some Direction?
Rhinos do not often step back from Disputes, which is why We are careful with expressing Opinions. It is not a matter of cowardice, it shows Common Sense.
Keeping Quiet is a system for Disarming Disputes. Don’t begin them.
Unless you like a good Wrangle to enliven your day, and have the Bandaids ready to go.
YIR is back in action, having done our darnedest to master the Lariat. We are still unclear about the differences between sagebrush and tumbleweed.
Exposure to these herbal issues probably did Us good, but We Rhinos often need a lot of time to process what those enhanced virtues might be.
We did get better at yodeling, cowboy style. We did not get Good; We got Better.
The Staff are off to gather sagebrush and will back in the office shortly. Keep your eyes peeled!
Occasionally YIR gets a note from a Reader, saying that Rhino Ways seem Mysterious. On these occasions We at YIR roll our eyes, given that the entire purpose of ‘Your Inner Rhino’ is to inform, clarify, and relate to our Readers.
Tangentially, it is a fact that We Rhinos find Human Motivation pretty Mysterious now and then. As you can probably imagine.
Solution?: We can all Keep Trying.
