Ray asks, "Do you believe that there is such a thing as Spiritual blindness? If so, what is it exactly?"

If we are to say that there is a spiritual sense then, yes, the individual can certainly diminish that sense's information through repeated denial.

Going the other way, one can follow spiritual information, to note it and take it seriously rather than dismiss it from the get-go. Through this practice one builds their own "spiritual" legacy, a personalized story of why the individual believes in "spirit."
