I would say, the mind, is that part of us which "cares" =]
Dont "mind" me.... "mind" your head....
mind, phonetically can sound like mined. The part of which "mines" for information, wherever it draws its information from. Like a coal miner, who goes into dark caves to bring out something of use

The question of 'what mind really is' is a complex question.
What I can say is that the mind is related to our brain in the sense that we can't think without the brain. Mind is associated with thinking and maybe having a mind is what makes us think in the first place.

The ming is the tool of the ONE which allow to know itself in infinity variety of forms. Mind is the channel is the one that allow the "human I" to identify as such and exist and thus your present reality.
Mind is the tool, it is mind that allow you to know yourself and live as "Philemon", it is mind that very well in other life may identify itself with other things and you become "George the ghost", etc.
As I have already said, mind's greatest capacity isnt to do, but to become. In fact it is so damn well at its job that we forget who we really are (SPIRIT) as through mind we have "became this".

That part of your consciousness that looks out for anything and everything bad that might threaten the survival of the being that you inhabit. (Which is just a delusion, actually). When you succeed at stilling the mind, you'll be at peace. Meditation is the most common method to accomplish this.

However, being part of this forum made me realize many many people are very picky about these words, and will not hesitate to bare their teeth and snarl ferociously if you use them incorrectly , so nowadays I would describe "mind" as the individuated portion of awareness.
If I do happen to use "mind" in a non-individuated context I will usually tack on the word "universal" to it. Such as "universal mind" and so on.

I usually refer to mind in the same way, as the individuated portion of awareness, which is inextricably connected with thoughts/thinking. Stepping out-of-the-mind, as I use it in my business name is meant in two ways:
1) Stepping out of thinking / individuated mind, which equals being aware.
2) Stepping out of the mind to expand the mind. This is a stretch of our thinking from old/outdated/destructive thought patterns and into new, more expansive, less limiting ones.
