Do we just make up a spiritual explanation of mundane and/or inner psychological experience, rationalizing away any evidence that contradicts it for the sake of hiding from our awareness of life's finitude and our lack of control? Is spirituality merely a delusion? Please justify your answer. It is my hope that someone will help convince me that the answer is no.

The phrase "Love and Light" is often seen here. Change your interpretation of spirituality to love. When you know love you know spirituality. The Idea of God as separate from you is a misconception (God,Source, the universe). If you think of your soul/spirit as a line extending from horizon to horizon that you see neither beginning nor end of. and this physical phase of this line is just a dot of light along it. Preceded and followed by a multitude of dots of light. Then think of countless strands of theses crossing each other running parallel to each other.@Jaiannia describes it well in this question there is no existential terror as such this terror you describe comes from within ones own-self.Negative beliefs and preconceptions .Take the "God" out of the clouds looking down and judging you to a "God" that fills and radiates from within you Love and Light!

Perhaps...Just perhaps...somewhere deep inside you...is a desire to feel The Spiritual of Life.
There have been many who have. Down through the ages, men and women have had inexplicable spiritual experiences which proved to them, at least, that there is a Spiritual World just Outside this one, and it weaves itself into our lives because we are not just physical, but spiritual, too.
When I was a small child, I left my body and flew! I did! I always wondered at this, until one dark day, I needed that memory. I had to remember because the experience proved to me that I have a Soul, separate from my body. It was not hallucination...I was too young for such nonsense. i was not stoned, drugged, insane, or intellectualizing. I was a small girl, just experiencing.
Those who experience God or the Spirit are called Mystics. They sense the Presence of Spirit, and have written many, many things about what they have seen and felt. I learned a saying long ago which helps me with this sometimes:
"If you cannot believe in a God of your own, Borrow Mine."
It works. I freely welcome you to try out my God!

spirituality exist you just need to experience it. but if your awareness is only on the outside you do not see what is on the inside. then you do not know your self. and because you do not know your self you do not know other. and it gives the world that you are experiencing now.
the more you will know your self and the more you will know other.and the better you can make wise decision with your free will.
but if you do not know your self you live in poverty and you are that poverty.
how can you live a good life in harmony if you fear other and think that they want to hurt you. even if they try to help you you will reject them judge them and be afraid of them. to the mesure you judge also will you be judge. so is that what you want in life?
you allready have seen that is what is happening in your life right now is it not?
do you think still think that it is only a merely psycological defense mecanisms?
or a knowledge of the inner and the outer in truth to solve the duality?
as to convince you or make you believe what ever you want,that belong to you and is part of your free will.
and if you believe that we are not telling you the truth take the blue pill go to sleep and you can believe what ever you want.
