Soul  is difficult   phenomenon

Mind is no longer known

Conciousness is a misconception

Then what is real?

Is it then  the  behaviour

Or thoughts, feeling and intellect?

Teacher has to think

The action which are performed

Or its the stimulus response

To know all these hidden facts

Come along with me

And jointly let us know

The  Word Psychology
