"The problem is not appearances / thoughts / concepts / dualities, but clinging to them."
The problem is clinging to them because we are ignorant of their inconceivable unique all-pervading timeless unborn unconditioned unchanging unceasing pristine true nature & dynamic as it is; ignorant of the Union of the Two Truths about all dharmas / opposites, like the three spheres -- subject / mind, relation / activity, object / phenomena -- [U2T-3S] ... I think.
"When you recognize mind-essence [the true nature & dynamic of the mind, and of everything / U2T],
at that moment nothing is switched off [no need to reject appearances, thoughts, concepts, dualities].
You can still see and hear and feel and so forth very precisely,
in fact, because there's no latching onto or “clinging” to anything at that moment.
Everything is vividly clear, totally distinct.
You experience exactly what is.
Nothing is distorted in any way.
You're not fixating on [grasping at] anything either.
And when you grow more accustomed to that state,
then you can carry out any activity from within it.
Everything becomes the play of original wakefulness [UGM]."

What creates samsara
“It's very important to understand what creates samsara,
also called the realm of confusion.
Samsara does not arise from external circumstances.
It's not tied to any particular object in the world around us.
What creates samsara is
how the mind habitually 𝙘𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨 to its misperceptions of reality.” ❤️
~ Mingyur Rinpoche
