What is the mind? No man living knows. We know a great deal about the mind, but not what it is. By mind, we mean consciousness. We are now using it. We cannot locate mind in the body, for, while the body is a necessary vehicle for consciousness while we are here, it is not consciousness. –Ernest Holmes
When I am conscious I can take charge of a situation and do whatever I can to show love and compassion and to be a positive force for change for the good of all concerned. When I have consciousness, I can take a deep breath and give myself a lift. When I have consciousness I can influence and uplift others.
