When we are in a state of the naive mind, we access fresh views on ordinary things in daily life. Along with this, we obtain the resource and motivation to create something new. It is a joyful and lively experience.

The naive mind is the original state of our minds - the true self. When we grow up, knowledge and experience are accumulated, and the values of others are diffused with our mind; practical concerns, calculations, and attachments are inseparable from us like a shadow. The true self is lost.

When we reduce and empty our knowledge and past experiences; let go of practical benefit, artificial act, then the true self will be uncovered. Through this work, I want to share this process of emptying the mind, just to let your naive mind embrace freedom and experience the infinite possibilities of the world.
