What is the source of the mind?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Okay, first you tell me the source of waves, then I’ll tell you this.
Mind is like the waves on the surface of consciousness. Consciousness is like the ocean, mind is like the wave and they continue to be there.
When the Sun comes, where does the darkness go? When you switch on the lights, where does the darkness go?

In partial light, your shadow falls on the floor, but when the light becomes bigger, the shadow disappears. Where did the shadow go?
I make a knot of this cloth and then I released the knot, where did the knot go? Has it gone from this cloth to that cloth?
