Flitting between sadness, grief, and the taste of a honey sandwich.
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

(SN 22.97)

There is knowledge that mind is just an idea, the idea being a consciousness, consciousness perceived to be a term that is appropriate (by consciousness). Arising of consciousness and its cessation/suibsiding can be experienced whereas there is no mind that can be experienced. If consciousness subsides there is just nothing. :sage:

please define what you mean by mind?
but yours appears to be underlined
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

The question "WHERE IS YOUR MIND?" does not apply. No locality, possession or state (of mind) has been declared.
