All thoughts, words, and deeds should be dedicated to the Divine. When the thoughts, which are prelude to action, are centered on God, they are unlikely to go astray. Aham (the Ego) arises from the Atma. Thoughts are produced by the ego and give rise to speech. Hence, all actions are based on the Atma. When all these are sanctified by dedication to God, the consciousness of oneness with Brahman, Aham Brahmasmi (I am Brahman), ensues. That Brahman is Prajna (constant integrated awareness).
