The problems we face with appearances and all of the suffering we experience as a result of them are not because of the appearances themselves, but because of our fixation on them. It is our fixation upon appearances which turns appearances into enemies. Because these appearances are just appearances, they are just what appears to us. If we have no fixation on them, they will not bring any suffering.
