Below is an excerpt from a 6 page letter Elvis sent to Wanda, posted on ELC. The excerpt (& other excerpts from the letter) is also shown on Maia's Heart to Heart gallery, which inspired me to post below for discussion.


Quote:
Usually whatever one cannot stand in another is the very fault in themselves. This Ive found to be true. So I try not find fault with anyone and if I can, I try to find the good in them and dwell on it. I look for the same trait in myself that offends me in another...I usually can find it in myself. The thing that bugs me most in another is narrow mindedness...so I try to be open about my own. I sometimes fail, but I am nothing like I once was. I have opened a door so wide and so wonderful that I could never shut it.


The above quote from Elvis really struck a cord with me because I have found fault with others. So it has not been pleasant looking in the mirror and seeing that, and yet it is good for me. I can only grow. I don't think it means we pretend that faults in others don't exist, but it is not our place to judge people, to play God so to speak. And we are more likely to draw out the divine good in people by dwelling on the good in them.
