Why do beautiful things not last?

Why do beautiful things not last? This one sentence, question, I can't understand, hearing it breaks my heart. How blind have we become, that we can no longer see that beauty is everywhere?


As I open my window, the wind greets me despite it's cold with the smell of clean winter air, it is refreshing and pleasant. Despite the grey cloudy sky, the infinite patterns and shapes are the work of a true masterpiece, never is the sky the same. Is this not beautiful?


As I watch the trees, they are left naked yet the complex fractal form of the twigs and branches are masterpieces of architecture, creating the optimum design for the leaves to receive sunlight. Is this not beautiful?


As some plants have died, they have left their seed in the earth so that with the coming spring their children shall see the love of the sun and earth. Is this not beautiful?


How can we not see that we are living in paradise? How can we say that this is hell? The only blemish to this paradise is humanity, while all we need to do is open our eyes and we shall be freed from the shackles of evil once we behold the ineffable beauty that surrounds us.

Catharsia Opalis
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
Born in Luxembourg 1990 of Persian and Icelandic Origin.

Most of my drawings are from my notebook in which I scribble mostly my thoughts and occasionally have come to find drawing more and more inspiring, to the point that I find myself wanting to practice it since it offers a form of expression that transcends the boundaries of the written text allowing to communicate ideas on a more intuitive level. My interest is mostly the esoteric and spiritual traditions and as I have been stepping into that path slowly for the past 2 years, my interest for art has gone up with it. Magick and the Arts have many bridges connecting each other. Especially as a means to communicate with the inner worlds and ones inner self. It allows the expansion of consciousness in contrast to the purely rational and logical trained mind who is forever alone in an external world. Belief in oneself is lacking far and wide and I see the arts as a solution to re-mediating that.

I use many pseudonyms as a way to remind myself of the varying levels of self and also to remind myself I am not what I define to be nor what I perceive but I am both the unseen and seen, the known and unknown, the I and the I that I define by saying I am Catharsia Opalis. I am an artist. I am this and that. It is to remind me that I am I and that everyone else is I and that is all that I am. All that and far more and at the same time nothing at all.

Yours Catharsia Opalis, aka F.r.E.A.K aka Tarin Akarin Raven
