It is not the THREE components that are important.
It is the CHAIN between them that is so utterly RADICAL!
We see life as a PROCESS where what you THINK determines what you SAY and what you say determines how you ACT. Therefore, our focus is not on EXTERNAL BEINGS like in all other religions and philosophies but on INTERNAL BECOMINGS.
This is utterly radical. But the masses out there either trained to think Abrahamic dualism, Eastern superstitious polytheism, or Western atheism, will not understand the radicality of Zarathushtra's statement UNLESS IT IS EXPLAINED TO THEM.
Grown-ups as well as children need TEACHERS to understand the conditions of Existence.
One way of explaing the statements is to rephrase it and translate it properly to modern English, in which case the stateent shoudl read: CONSTRUCTIVE thoughts lead to CONSTRUCTIVE words lead to CONSTRUCTIVE actions.
Please spread this, this is what Zoroastrianism/Mazdayasna is all about!

Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds
Is it not enough?
What is our answer to some critiques who question the meaningfulness of this famous Zoroastrian slogan in one’s life, claiming that it is too general and so, not showing a clear path for a Good life?
As such, they claim that a religion which is very specific in defining Good is superior.
