THE BUZZARD:

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 BAT:
The ordinary bat that flies around at night,
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 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.

THE BUMBLEBEE:
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,
until it completely destroys itself.

PEOPLE:

In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee.
We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations,
never realizing that all we have to do is look up!
That’s the answer, the escape route and the solution
to any problem!
Whether the problem is in your organisation,
family, social circle or personal life
– Just look up.

Sorrow looks back
Worry looks around
But faith looks up …
… and still keeps you hooked !!!
