There are also other illusions that aren't optical. This world is full of deceptive things.

That being said, I think our biggest illusion is that of time and it's passage. If we could somehow overcome that, it would change everything.
Excellent thread point! This is one of the primary reasons why holding any sort of uncompromising rigidity in regards to what we THINK we KNOW, can severely hinder our spiritual growth, and perhaps even stop it dead in it's tracks. By all means believe, but remain open to the possibility that the contrary, may just be the truth.

Spiritual and religious are not interchangeable. Elements of religion fall into the spectrum of spirituality, but spirituality encompasses much more than the religious aspect that you seem so drawn to.
