Illusion isn't the problem. Neither is deceit nor deception. Not even the fact that we reside in a dream state wandering through great disorganized spliced narratives.
Acknowledge God as the substance, law, cause, and activity of all that is, and immediately refrain from meddling physically or mentally in the without. Get back inside yourself, and there resolve all appearancesIf we love life we have to live it as it is as we are.
(-from The Infinite Way, by Joseph Goldsmith)
There is no changing life, only changing how we see it.
Get back inside yourself.
There is where all meaningful change is originating.
