Ani Kaspar’s greatest bliss is “living deeply, wholly and magnificently my true Self, or my authentic Soul, moment to moment, breath to breath. An unbound life of freedom, grace and love is who I am as a blissful embodiment here on precious Gaia. She says: “I feel completely connected to the simple perfection of every event, thought, feeling, action and Being in the world. I am void of judgment or expectation. Accepting, loving life and all of its many manifestations, including death or transition, with loving compassion, is my deepest bliss, my most sacred joy. Moving through the continual creation and re-creation of Self or Soul, without a sense of limitation, is so fulfilling experiential bliss is inevitable. For me bliss is the unbounded cascading of love, moment to moment, breath to breath.”
With the diagnosis of cancer, Ani’s life shifted radically. She proclaims with gratitude: “I would have to say I am healed. Although modern medical tests continue to confirm a small degree of cancer is detectable, I know this residual dis/ease is more like an echo from a past event, completed in time and space, but still lightly pulsing as it recedes from NOW. Cancer no longer is my daily truth; it is more a chapter of my untruthful past. Cancer was a phenomenal evolutionary tool for my Self, for my Soul, to emerge quickly, powerfully and certainly. Cancer was an amazing call to my essential truth as love. When I peeled away the dead stringencies of non-Soul, of inauthenticity, of non-love, my Soul burst alive. Now I know cancer was also unnecessary for this beautiful journey, but one I chose most probably because it was a timely tool for many of us here on Gaia.
Ani gladly spoke of her book with the whimsical title Pelicans, Coconuts & Butterflies.
“As I was completing ‘Pelicans, Coconuts & Butterflies’ and searching for a title to best express this amazing journey, I would sit on my front veranda in Porta Del Sol, watching pelicans fly and dive their intimate connection with life. Sunrise and sunset, I would sit listening to the sea whisper and drink the life-affirming waters of coconuts, waters that not only quench the Soul, but also deeply nourish the body. And throughout my day of writing, editing and searching for truth, each time I arrived truth, a butterfly would gently flutter by to taste the sweet nectar of the neighboring passionflower vine. In one moment the title just came to me: ‘Pelicans, Coconuts & Butterflies: Conquering Cancer with a Life of Soul.’ In that moment I knew: I live a life of pelicans, coconuts and butterflies – a moment of the cycle of ceaseless life, deep soul-quenching love, and joyous, playful truth. I am committed to living that life for the rest of my life here on Gaia”.
Compassionate Cure for Cancer ® is what she refers to as her “humanitarian call to action.”, which asks cancer patients worldwide “to request the modern medical community investigate and deliver natural, less invasive methods of treating and curing cancer. Options are our natural birthright. We must consider them carefully. Should you elect to pursue conventional medical cancer treatment, alternative cancer treatment protocols, or a combination of both, you will be required to sign a form of consent (or perhaps several). CCC asks that you read and print the following statement and attach it to each one:
“I invite you, the world medical and scientific community, to deliver compassionate care for cancer and to find a compassionate cure for cancer NOW.
I invite you to end the suffering of a cancer patient today. I know you will accept this invitation of compassion. I have.
Simply, Compassionate Cure for Cancer (R) is an opportunity for cancer patients to voice their request for more choice, better options and more freedom in the physical treatment of this dis/ease.
Ani’s spiritual practice is an essential component of her life. “Love and nature feed my spiritual practice. As long as I love, moment to moment, breath to breath, all that is my Soul, my essential Self is immeasurably replenished. And as long as I am able to be in nature, to be one with Gaia and her infinite gifts, for some time each day, my spirit soars. Whether I am strolling along the shore with a neighbor’s dog, gently stroking my cat Gigi, surfing the wondrous waves of the Caribbean sea, or planting vegetables in my garden in Porta Del Sol, I feel blissed, blessed and eternally grateful. To love and to be at one with nature. Loving is my optimal choice, of course. Loving is so easy, so immediately fulfilling. “
Ani embodies this quote:
