Sechel/mind is a gift. It is not a tool to pursue your worldly interests. It is the revelation of the soul at a conscious level. Man exists at a living level, not at the existential level.
Why does the soul provide this revelation? This is because it recognizes it has a stake in the world and thus it gets involved. Sechel/mind correlates the soul with the world. Not for the sake of knowing the world, but for the sake of affecting the world.
This goes into the category of kavanah/intent.
It is the soul that enables the person to appreciate tasty food, but it will never be convinced that the person is here in this world for the sake of tasty food.
The kavanah is higher than sechel – it touches the soul itself – it answers the question: “what does it mean to be here?”
