How come the pictures are not taken directly from above?
I know. I know. If I had the capability to levitate above the pond, I would surely do it.
These pictures, however, remind me of ourselves.
Sometimes we are like these turtles, so caught up in our situation under the pressure of water.
That blinds us into thinking that our surrounding is so obscure we don’t know where we should be going to next.
But when we lift our head to draw air, the view of our surrounding from above the surface of water gets clear.
That gives us a different perspective and a new mindset.
The mindset that nothing is too great for us to handle if we are to see the bigger picture.
From above, everything else seems small (but not for these poor tiny turtles).
What a pleasant advantage it is to be able to levitate!
