Torah Guidance

וקשרתם לאות על ידך והיו לטטפת בין עיניך. וכתבתם על מזזות ביתך

Rabbeinu Yona in Berochos writes that the Tefilin on the hand is to subjugate our heart and desires to Hashem. The Tefilin on the head is to subjugate our brain and neshoma to Hashem. And the mezuza is to subjugate our possessions and money to Hashem.
It could be that the Torah is teaching us how to go about to fulfill ‘בכל לבבך’ with the Tefilin on the hand, ‘בכל נפשך’ with the Tefilin on the head and ‘בכל מאדך’ with the Mezuza.
