Be ordinary. 

Every place is a place of arrival,
every place is a true home for the practitioner.
There is nothing that is not deep and wonderful,
there is nothing that is not liberated.

The most noble person is the person who has nothing to do. 
The only thing you should avoid is thinking about what
you are going to do.

All you need to do is be an ordinary person,
be sovereign wherever you are and use 
that place as your seat of awakening.

You should live your lives in a very natural way. 
Do not put on airs. 
When it is necessary to walk, walk. 
When it is necessary to sit, sit.
