People who have had little self-reflection live life in a huge reality blind-spot...

There are ways to live life that some people are not even aware exists, especially people who have had little self-reflection live life in a huge reality blind-spot. 

They truly believe that life is a certain way, when it really isn't. It is like a sad inside joke that everyone is aware of, but them. 
They think they have it all figured out. 
They really believe they are "good" people. 
They do everything right on the surface. 
They are responsible, friendly, pay their bills and work hard. 
They put food on the table for their families. 
They have good credit scores, don't speed and keep a clean house. 
But something is missing. It is so "missing" they don't even know it's missing.

They are emotionally and spiritually dead. 
They recoil from or avoid affection. 
You will never meet a deep penetrating gaze from their shallow eyes; only a surface glances. 

They will touch your hand with their hand, but never with their heart. 
They will serve your body but not your soul. 
They can only connect with you through utility, but never passion. 

If you need cupcakes or a jar opened, they are perfect; if you need compassion or wisdom, you are all alone. 

They are only a person as society made them, not as nature intended them. 
They live life so perfectly, but know nothing of life at all. 
They did everything they were told to be a good person, but are hardly a person at all. 
They are empty. 
They are dead inside.

They are usually very judgemental. 
They see themselves as nice but are often mean and cold. 
They feel themselves superior. 
They think everything they do is exactly the way it is supposed to be done. 
They are repeaters. 
They lack original thought. 

If you challenge their slumber with awakened thoughts, they will panic and flee. 

They will make you feel crazy because they only believe what the masses believe. 
They are the embodiment of the masses, because they have not become their own individual person.

Individuation is an attainment of spiritual maturity frighteningly seldom attained in today's mono-cultures. 

You cannot change these people. 
You cannot snap them out of their sleep. 
Only a tragic event will awaken them.

How does one see their own blind-spot? 
Maybe you know someone like this. Or, maybe it's you. 
Maybe you're dead inside and don't even know it.
