- Youngs Literal Bible
8:6 For to be carnally minded - That is, to mind the things of the flesh. Is death - The sure mark of spiritual death, and the way to death everlasting. But to be spiritually minded - That is, to mind the things of the Spirit. Is life - A sure mark of spiritual life, and the way to life everlasting. And attended with peace - The peace of God, which is the foretaste of life everlasting; and peace with God, opposite to the enmity mentioned in the next verse.
Ro 8:6 To be carnally minded. To be under the dominion of the fleshly impulses of the body. [Is] death. Is sure proof that one is spiritually dead and under condemnation. To be spiritually minded. To be walking in obedience to the Spirit of Christ. [Is] life and peace. Gives life to the soul, maintains a vital union with Christ, and brings peace, or conscious enjoyment of the grace of God.

We can pursue 'minding of the spirit' by regularly setting our minds on the things of the spirit and allowing a spiritual inclination and attitude to develop in us. We want to build our life around a spirtual routine that includes regular prayer, Bible reading and study and worship of Jehovah God.
