Seeing something in someone else is easy – we just look.
People reveal so much, it’s usually not difficult. But when we see in someone else, something which is a huge failing or disaster in ourselves, I think we tend to dismiss or ignore it completely, as if it was both invisible and inconsequential at the same time – as if it did not exist.

Unless something else, or someone else, matters more to us than ourselves – this can be a calling of some sort, a passion, but most likely it is someone we love. Logic v. illogical does not come into it when the emotional tug is so clear, so unmistakable. We find it with our children, and with few others, where that feeling is strong.
Dr. Gifford-Jones and others tell us that intravenous vitamin C can cure us, if and when we get it, but western medicine doesn’t use it.
