Paulius says that he is rediscovering again and again the meaningful truth about life, that the hardest thing is to find balance in it. “To love and work, to strive ambitiously and to withdraw wisely. Not only does a stick have two ends, but it also has a point where we keep it in perfect balance. Where is this point and how to keep it? After all, when we approach one end, the stick, as life does, swings. I see the desire for this balance in the wishes of my customers, and I also feel inside myself. Mindfulness allows me to notice the moment when balance is slipping out of hand. You cannot restore it by seizing quickly because the balance, like life, reveals to the most patient,” says Paulius.

For those seeking inner balance, Paulius has written the book “Staigmena gyventi” (“The Surprise of Living”). According to him, mindfulness can provide skills that are useful for everyday life: to feel calm even during hard work and not to feel a stranger to oneself when there is a silent break.
