veils on heart | how to remove it?

1.
it is a very frequent and recurring theme in the Quran as well as in Bible that God says, there are certain people who have veils on their heart so that the truth doesn't reach them.

Over their hearts We have laid veils which prevent them from grasping its inner meaning, and into their ears, deafness. And so, whenever you mention, while reciting the words of God, your Sustainer as the One and only Divine Being, they turn their backs in aversion. -Quran (17:46)

They have no knowledge or wisdom; for he has put a veil over their eyes, so that they may not see; and on their hearts, so that they may not give attention. - The Bible (Isaiah 44:18)

To this day, in fact, whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their hearts, but whenever a person turns to the Lord the veil is removed. - Corinthians (3: 15-16)

this veil is the veil of ignorance on the part of human being, a self creation delusion. although everything is ultimately from the Creator, as He is the Ultimate Cause, the Source of All, but there are lesser causes in the creation. there are things which as human being we create. we create our perception, we create our ignorance, we become arrogant and we make ourself deviate from the real.

it is said in ancient Hindu spiritual texts that, everything is produced by ignorance and dissolves in the wake of knowledge. this 'everything' is the created things of our limited perception that we see around, imagine around, create around as part of our being, as the source of lesser cause.

now going back to the main theme, veils on heart, i found it from my own limited experience how true it is. sometime it is so hard for you to convince others, or even to pass down the simple messages to other who create around themselves this veil of ignorance. for individuals how to break apart this veil is what make me think. let alone lofty and grand idea such as the Infinite Presence:God, but little things that matter to life, that matters to a meaningful living - such messages are hard to penetrate.

i was just wondering, can you help me think better solution to this? although in one sense its God's grace that alone can remove this veil, but to be practical and acknowledging that we are God's instrument, how do we instrumentalize this process? How to remove the veils of ignorance? Tell me how?
