CLIMB-A-THON FOR WEALTH, WELLNESS AND WELL BEING
by Susan Nyambura Njuguna
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).
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.
- 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.
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.
