I don't see a problem with the concept of "mind." It's true, teachers from different traditions use it differently. Just stick with the definition/view/understanding that works best for you.Reading the Natural Mind- Ajahn Chah
I think Goldstein's pov is not that we should embrace the ideas/views of other traditions, but that it becomes easier to accept them (reduce our aversions) when we're aware of the commonalities of our traditions. The differences are there though, definitely.
It seems wise to stick with the path/methods that work for us.
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
