If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 10 feet and is entirely open on top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will remain a prisoner in this cage.
The reason is....
The buzzard always begins its flight with a run of 10 - 12 feet.
Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at noight, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place.
If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about helpessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air.
Then at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom.
It will seek a way where none exists, util it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat and the bumblebee.
We struggle about with all of our problems and frustrations, nver realizing that all we have to do is look up!
That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem!
Just look up.
Sorrow looks back,
Worry looks around,
But faith looks up!
Live simply, love generously, care deeply and speak kindly.
