“The mind flows as energy & information are channeled through the process of attention.”
~ Dan Siegel
One definition of 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: intellect, attention.
Here's a definition Dr. Dan J. Siegel and 30 or so of his colleagues came up with that builds on the definition above. Quite a collaboration!
"The mind is a self-organizing, emergent, embodied and relational process that arises from and regulates energy and information within the body we live in, between our self & other people, and with the planet." Sound like the soul to you?
Mindfulness can be considered a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations.
If you're craving connectivity you may appreciate the definition of connectivity author Brene Brown shares. I've taken the liberty to expand it to include other living creatures, not just humans-
Connectivity is the energy that exists between sentient beings when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
