Mr. Mu Xin said:
“Lack of aesthetic power is a terminal illness, and knowledge can’t save it.”
Many people are poor now,
Poor is not material,
Without proper aesthetics,
Life reveals its most practical and vulgar side,
Behind the increasing pursuit of practicality,
Life is becoming more and more boring and withered.
Mr. Feng Zikai also said:
“Human desires have five:
Appetite, lust, knowledge, virtue, beauty”.
The desire for aesthetics is human nature,
It is also part of the quality of life.
Zhu Xi, a Neo Confucianist in the Southern Song Dynasty, once wrote a poem:
Half an acre of square pond opened,
Sky light and cloud shadow hovering together.
Ask him how clear he is,
For the source of living water.
It is the “source of living water” for you and me.
People who are obsessed with fame and wealth, and the ups and downs of the world,
Naturally, there is no “sky light and cloud shadow” in my heart,
Their great disease is the exhaustion of spiritual life.
A person who understands aesthetics,
not just survival,
but in life.
A piece of stone, a piece of bamboo,
a lump of mud, a piece of wood,
From a realistic point of view,
It’s not worth much,
But its simplicity always allows it to bloom the brilliance of art.
As Gu Xian said:
“The wood has old roots and branches,
It is twisted and twisted like a dragon, and it is rubbed like jade”,
It can be used as a good article for the study, and it will be with your heart all day long.
The beauty that reaches the heart,
Why bother with a cumbersome appearance as an exaggeration,
Simple cleansing, natural flushing,
It is more charming,
This is minimalism.
Just the right amount of net,
It’s so wonderful,
The simplicity is almost Zen,
It can be felt, but not spoken.
The Tao Te Ching says:
“From the beginning of all things, from the avenue to simplicity, from evolution to complexity.”
The same is true for minimalism,
In pursuit of simplicity to the extreme,
Sense of simplicity and cleanliness,
More elegant in taste and thought.
Simple, but not simple.
We’re always going round and round,
From colorful to colorless,
From complex to simple,
Quiet from the hustle and bustle
When you really calm down,
Only then did I realize that minimalism is actually extremely beautiful.
Like Bada Shanren’s paintings,
“There are not many ink dots and many tears,
Mountains and rivers are still old mountains and rivers.”
a fish, a bird, a tree,
one flower, one fruit,
Not even a penny,
Only stamp one side,
It becomes a painting.
clean and concise,
like Zhang Dai’s
“Looking at the Snow at the Pavilion in the Heart of the Lake”:
“There is only a trace of the long embankment, a small pavilion in the center of the lake, and a mustard with Yu Zhou,
There are only two or three grains for the people in the boat. “
Articles of less than 200 words,
Wrote all the confusion of the lake and mountain snow scene,
The grace and charm of the West Lake,
Presenting a plain ink painting,
Ethereal crystal reflection,
Hiding the air of ice and snow,
Contains infinite meaning.
the highest aesthetics,
It must be minimal.
Plain to the extreme, simple to the extreme, clean to the extreme,
It makes people feel peaceful and Zen,
Return to the most authentic and eternal tranquility deep in my heart.
Precipitate the color
Contains the “simplification” of Zen
one element, one element
One white and one black.
good fortune with one mystery and one element
Changing colorful nature
point directly at the ontology
Just put a flower,
There can be no debris in the background,
What I want is the vastness and solitude between heaven and earth,
Only stay with you, one session and one session.
Minimalist tea ceremony
Both tea and utensils come from nature,
back to nature,
Beautiful tea, beautiful utensils, beautiful environment, beautiful heart,
Heaven and man are one,
Fang is the way of tea.
The culture of incense and Taoism has been passed down for thousands of years.
China’s traditional incense culture of thousands of years,
It is the ultimate expression of aesthetics.
There is no clear standard,
Probably back to the original,
Leave what your heart needs,
It is minimal.
