The absence of noise and silence is a perfect moment (upgraded)

When the contrast of noise and silence has been cancelled out by completely including one side of the contrast, the apparent difference in a world of duality between noise and silence is not perceived to make a difference, because you are in a state of not knowing – also called a perfect moment.

If your lower back is sway-backed, the body makes a contrast in the upper back, so whether you fully include the pain of the lower or upper back is the same, because the inclusion of one side of a contrast cancels out both of them (see the below note). In other words, the apparent difference between the opposing sides of this contrast does not appear to make a difference anymore.

As the inclusion of one contrast momentarily rubs off on other contrasts, they are cancelled out as well, and as what you appear to be is defined by contrasts, there is nothing to define you as someone definitive. Ergo you are in a state of not-knowing. This does not necessarily mean that there is no more pain, but that there is nobody suffering from it. That is, if the pain was not a symptom of a mental problem.

The body rebels against the unhealthy idea of a body-mind connection inflicted upon it by getting sick.

If you have forced the unfortunate belief of a body-mind connection onto the body, the mind sees its chance to get rid of its problems by dumping them in the body, so if you for example heal symptoms caused by the mind in the back, it will right away bury its problems somewhere else in the body. You can therefore keep on healing symptoms in the body until you approach the problem where it is, namely in the mind.

A mental problem can for example be that you try to restrict your sexual energy in accordance with specific concepts of society or yoga doctrines like tantra, but sooner or later your mental control of sexuality will settle in the body in the shape of muscle pain. See also the article Holding back to not ejaculate is just another physical manifestation – but without the thrill of it.

But it is not easy to spot a problem in the mind, as it is probably hidden behind the noise of arguing about this and that. No worries. It is not necessary to pick out the problem. You just hack through the noise of the mind by completely including it, which is done by being nothing but noise – or at least be willing to (see the last paragraph in the below note about willingness). As this means there is nothing to contrast it, the existence of noise is no more, neither of its contrast silence.

This you do not know, however, because the cancellation of the opposing elements of one contrast in the mind momentarily rubs off on the others, so the mind is empty and therefore not able to define you as someone definitive. In other words, you are in a state of not-knowing – also called a perfect moment – and there everything is alright as it is.

NOTE: The above is an appendix to the article Inclusiveness is a state of not-knowing – and that is pure bliss, where you can read in more details about how the inclusion of one side of a contrast cancels out both sides.

In that article you can also read more about how the unfortunate belief in a body-mind connection has caused countless psychosomatic disorders, because the mind misuses the body to get rid of its problems by dumping them there. There is more about this in articles The mind and the body are two different things, The mind has no sense of the physical reality of a body and To set the body free is to set you free.

The article How to not be fearful but blissful by not being exclusive but inclusive and Willingness to not exclude but include undoes the belief in a world where there seems to be more than one is about how willingness to be inclusive is enough to enter a perfect moment. And the article You can never lose life is about how being exclusive can be perceived as a confirmation of life, since there would be nothing to exclude if not for that, so the very thing that is meant to define you as someone definitive can be used to undo that belief.
