The Zen thing: Ordinary Mind

Ordinary Mind is a mindset of ordinary.

Good things are ordinary.

Surprises are ordinary.

Bad things are ordinary.

When we operate from this ordinary perspective we will never get nervous, tense or choke.  We will have no doubt because success and failure are both ordinary.

We can also truly apply or full attention and energy to whatever our intentions guide us.  This is because the noise that usually distracts us is ordinary and does not command our attention any more than everything else.

It is good to strive to make everything ordinary in our lives.
