The Buzzard, the Bat & the BumbleBee

Written by Author Unknown

If you put a buzzard in a pen six or eight feet square and
entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of his 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 ten or
twelve feet. Without space to run, as is his habit, he 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 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.

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.

In many ways, there are lots of people like the buzzard,
the bat and the bee. They are struggling about with all
their problems and frustrations, not realizing that the
answer is right there above them.
