life and peace

"for to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace." - romans 8:6
"to set the mind" speaks of purpose. a willful choice. to set the mind "on the flesh" has a penalty - death. this could be literal or figurative. who wants death when there is an alternative - life? but this also requires purpose - setting the mind on the Spirit. this willful choice brings life AND a nice little bonus - peace.
