Why process is more important than the result?

Open Mind Ceramics

Open mind is mind receptive to new/different ideas and opinions.

All the ceramic items in this store are created by people who practice meditation, and the majority of the items are made by Arūnas Valančius, a long-time meditation practitioner.

For this reason, these ceramic items have specific features. One characteristic is that the process is more important than the result. Paradoxically, in this way, the master’s potential is most fully revealed, because the creative process is enveloped in ease and tranquility, free from the tension that often arises from excessive thinking and goal-oriented striving. Consequently, these objects carry within themselves a sense of peace not only in their forms and colors, but also in their essence.

Another specific characteristic of these items is that most of them serve as a reminder to be present in the moment. This function can be of great benefit to those who are just beginning their journey towards inner peace and to those who are already well-versed in this path. Therefore, these objects can be confidently given as gifts to both groups or used by oneself.

On one hand, by acquiring these handcrafted items, you obtain a sense of peace and kindness, and on the other hand, some of these items serve as a good reminder that it’s important to live in the present reality, rather than in fantasies or memories.
