The Mind

 

And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; Ephesians 4:23 (KJV) The mind is the “element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experiences, to think, and to feel; the faculty of consciousness and thought.” Psychology says it “the totality of conscious and unconscious mental processes and activities.” The caveat is “the failure to have consensual resolution to the mind-body problem remains at the heart of psychology and its difficulties as a fragmented discipline.” The early Greeks believed the mind to be where we reason and understand. The mind is not the brain although we store thoughts in the brain. “I think, therefore I am.” Descartes used this ability to think as a proof of existence. And Paul added greater confusion here when he said “in the spirit of.” Of course, that’s only confusion to us as Paul knew what he was saying. Regardless, he said it, the mind, needed to be renewed.
