Mt. Longonot Climb: Soul Searching Epiphany Journey for Universal Health

MT.  LONGONOT CLIMB-A-THON FOR WEALTH, WELLNESS AND WELL BEING

Our soul searching epiphany journey is a quest for universal health involving reflecting on our lives to collectively discover and bring profound understanding (breakthroughs). Epiphany is a moment when you suddenly know you understand something or become conscious of something that is very important to your life. Epiphanies do not come from the mind. They come from the soul with the goal of moving from knowledge (information) to understanding (awareness).

Our February search takes us to Mt. Longonot in Nakuru county Kenya.

Breakthroughs are the products of work of the soul, the mind and the body working together. When breakthroughs occur,  we begin to see something in a different light.

Quest for Universal Health

Our quest involves an African mountains climb-a-thon. We intend to climb a mountain a month to helps us achieve epiphany for universal health. The climb-a-thon will bring people from all over the nation and the world.  Together will seek to understand universal health, and seek answers on what it will take to achieve it.

THE PROBLEM

  • Our health system is broken and does no work
  • Our people die from diseases that others have known how to cure for centuries
  • Our women die just because they get pregnant
  • Children die just because they are born
  • Our hospitals do not have supplies
  • Our medical professionals are frustrated
  • Our nurses and our doctors are in recurrent strikes. As soon as one group is done the other one picks up the strike

These problems indicate that

  • We do not know health
  • We do not produce health
  • We do not make health
  • We do not have health

Therefore, we cannot provide health, for no one can provide something s/he doesn’t have not have.

THE QUESTION

What is health?

  • How do we produce it?
  • How do we make it?
  • How do we have it?
  • How do we provide it?

PATHWAY TO DISCOVERY

To find answers to the question we have to go on a collective soul searching journey to seek the answers together, collectively as a nation.

We must gain insight into the five levels of universal health:

  • individual health,
  • family health,
  • community health,
  • nation health, and
  • global health.

We embark on an epiphany journey which will involve climbing a mountain a month for until we find the answer to the question. Together we get to understand universal health.

Ngong Hills Climb: Soul Searching Epiphany Journey for Universal Health

Insight from Ngong

Ngong Hills Climb took place Saturday, January 27, 2018.

We will achieve universal health by paying the right price for the things that women produce, and for services provided by women. We shall not achieve global health if we continue to exploit women by paying very low prices for the products of their labor.

Middlemen and brokers who buy goods produced by women at dirt cheap prices exploit them, ultimately driving them to extreme poverty.

When impoverished, a woman cannot take care of biological needs to maintain strong body that can carry pregnancy to term. Many women die during pregnancy because they do not have money to buy things that would help them improve the strength of their body, or money to go to the clinic for checkup.

If the woman with a weak body, survives pregnancy, she definitely will produce a weak baby. Weak babies have limited chance of survival to their first birthday. Children born weak, to women with little or no money are highly likely to die before age 5.

We will change all this by making sure that every woman is paid the right price for her work. We will will change all this by helping women have direct access to the market where they can sell their products directly without brokers and middlemen.

What experiences did you get from Ngong?

COMMENTS

Bishop Shisumu McKenzie

Thanks for the Insight.

I have always told women never to liken themselves to men.

Women are something; they are wired differently. Give them a sperm they give you a child. Given them a house they make a home. Given them  seed money they create the empire of business. The list goes on and on.

They can multitask. God took special time to create them; the softest thing you can have in your life. We must preserve them. Protect them.

We must have good healthcare for them. God gives them life, they carry life 9 months. Bring forth live babies; keeps them live until we have generations, what else do you want me to say? So much we can’t finish.
