The Buzzard , The Bat , And The Bumblebee

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! Just look up.
