I received this via email today from a very good friend… I simply had to pass it on!!!

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!

Hello, I would like to invite you to join a new and exciting network called http://www.mergeby.com . Merge by is designed to be the avenue to success. We are looking for mentors to help lead our groups. We would like to see study groups, bible study groups, professional groups, and etc. The foundation of the network is to pass on what you received. If you learn something, it’s time to become the teacher and teach what you have learned. What makes us different from the other networks are, each groups should have mentors, each group should be limited to five members, each member should upload a three minute video of themselves, members can make this their website, attempt to accommodate members requests, and asking each members to pass on what they received. I am excited about our network and where we will potentially be two years from now. We are at the beginning, join us and merge by to the avenue to success.

Thank you,

Locksley Gayle

Yes, we are often hampered by our lack of vision. There is always a way out, we simply must be aware enough to see it. Great post, thanks for sharing.

BTW – did you know that a house fly has to jump before it flies. I know this may be gross however if you place your hands right above a landed fly and clap the fly will always jump straight up into your hands.

@Mark. Actually, no. I didn’t know that!!! As gross as it seems, I can’t wait to try it out! Thanks for sharing!!! We all have to put forth some motion before we can soar. . . even if it’s only in our mind….don’t you think? 🙂 🙂

Peace, Light and Love. . . C.

As a person who surfaced from fear of height…don’t look down.

I did not know these very interesting facts, and it was a perfect analogy for humans. 🙂
Thank you for sharing this, CordieB.

I am re-reading a book that was life changing for me when I read it the first time. It’s “Creative Responsibility.” It helped me “fly” the first time..some new chapters in my life now, and I preparing to fly again. I had forgotten how powerful this inexpensive simple little book is…self empowering.

Good energies and peace of heart to you, my dear!
