Think about it.

 The Buzzard, the Bat & the Bumble Bee.
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 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, 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!
