Part 1: Finally at the end. School Of Eternal Youth.
Sona Siepakova’s School Of Eternal Youth is made as a story.
Due to a crisis in her life, Agnes, a woman in her forties, decided to climb a high, difficult-to-access mountain to find the Temple of Rejuvenation.
In discussions with the rainbow lady, Sopdet, who lives there, Agnes learns how each of us can retain longevity and enhance health.
Madam, it’s not that I’ve come for no reason. It was a very tough decision. It’s freezing here and the journey has been long. Please, accept me. Let me warm up at least, for a while. I’m incredibly tired.
And what have you been searching for that you’ve ended up at this place? The tall woman with rainbowy transparent skin asked. Her benevolent eyes radiated soft glow. Her voice sounded deep and calm as if she wasn’t surprised at all by the visitor’s arrival.
Why have I come? Actually, I’m not sure what I’m looking for. I’ve been chased by a sort of vision of my own mystery school. For more than ten years. I’ve tried to forget about it. To find a man, have kids. Yet, all has fallen apart somehow. My world is upside down and I feel so sadly empty. I don’t even feel any desire anymore, to be honest. Just the call hasn’t stopped:
Climb that mountain! Reach its summit! You’ll see! It’ll cheer you up. You’ll learn what’s wise.
So it’s wisdom you are seeking? The rainbow woman asked again, and stirred a bit in her lotus position. She was really tall but when seated it wasn’t so obvious. Perhaps, she didn’t want to scare her visitor. There’s some tea over there. Help yourself! It’s warm.
The pilgrim stormed to the teapot. For a moment, she just hugged it with her fingers to defrost them. Sniffing its steam with her nose. Her cheeks went scarlet from the warmth. Pouring a sip of tea into her cup had obviously lifted her mood. She turned back to the sitting lady.
Thank you. It almost seems as if you’ve been expecting me. Was it you who has called me here? The visitor wondered in surprise.
My name’s Sopdet. The rainbow giant said gently.
My name is Agnes. The visitor quickly replied.
Agnes, a priestess. Sopdet smiled.
A priestess? No way. I’m far from that, madam.
Sopdet. The rainbow lady corrected her. Don’t call me madam. I’m simply Sopdet.
And what’s the meaning of that name?
I’ll tell you later. Sopdet stood up and walked towards the side door. Drawing aside the carpet which separated the rooms, she beckoned to Agnes to follow her.
A HEALING PRAYER FOR YOU
I am grateful that I’ve come so far. Up to now when I’m feeling this way. It’s been meaningful. I started to ask. I stopped ‘sleeping’. I’m a bit upset from all those turns of events, but I’m thankful for them. They’ve brought me to this moment when I feel strong to start doing things differently. I don’t know what exactly. But I am ready to listen. I am open to new options. Sure, I’m scared of the future. I’m trembling, but not closing up anymore. The fact that my body is shaking shows me life has begun flowing through me at last. I’m giving up my resistance. I won’t deny my desire for that change. I want that. This is the start of my new life. I’m opening wide. Thank you, my soul, for guiding me through the transformation. For feeling your soothing affection. For calming me right now, for being able to feel your hug. The loving universe is swinging me in its arms and I am safe. I am opening to my transformation. I’m setting out for a journey. With my soul's love.
