If you put a Buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by
8 feet and is entirely open at the top, the bird, in
spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner.
The reason is that a Buzzard always begins a
flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 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 night,
a remarkably nimble creature in the air, can not
take off from a level place. If it is placed on
the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle
about helplessly 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 Bumble Bee, 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, until it completely destroys itself. 


In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat and the bumble bee…We struggle about with our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look UP !!!  Halleluiah !!!
