Bio for Thomas Razzeto

Thomas Razzeto's bio and email

I have been interested in the deepest questions about life and God for as long as I can remember, starting with my very Catholic upbringing, which I felt strongly connected to until I was about 20 years old. When I was about 25, I started to look into the Seth material, as channeled by Jane Roberts. At that time, I read lots of books about Near-Death Experiences, the afterlife, spirit communication and so forth. I really liked these books and when I was around 30, I started to attended many live channeling sessions in my local area.

By the time I was 50, various people and channeled entities had been telling me for half of my life that I was divine. While I had some intuitive understanding that this was indeed true, it was when Timothy Conway told me how this was true for all of us that the light bulb really turned on for me.

We all find our divine nature in our Awareness. It is here where we find our True Self. Timothy's satsangs were an excellent match for me and I attended every week from June 2005 until June 2016, when he and his wife Laura moved to Arizona.

I started writing in 1999 and soon after that, I was posting my essays on my website. This led to many invitations to speak publicly, both in person and on the radio. I have been featured twice on the very popular radio show, Coast to Coast AM and in September 2012, I spoke for the prestigious lecture series, Mind and Supermind, which is run by Santa Barbara City College. Graham Hancock twice selected me as his Author of the Month. I also was a guest on Rick Archer’s podcast, Buddha at the Gas Pump. Here's the link to that interview:

As you can see, my book is Living the Paradox of Enlightenment. The first edition was released in the fall of 2013 and the second edition was released in April 2017.

But it may surprise you that I don't see myself as an author. Instead, I see myself as a spiritual teacher who uses this book as a teaching guide. I am not planning on writing another book since this one covers all I want to say about spiritual growth and enlightenment. There are already many excellent books that cover some of the same topics that I touch upon in much greater detail than I do so I don't need to repeat what they offer. But I certainly offer a very unique perspective and you can find out more about that here: How My Teachings Are Unique.

Long ago, I received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and spent some years in software design, technical support, computer training, and computer consulting. But for whatever reason, I stepped away from the typical "worker bee" lifestyle about 30 years ago and just get by the best I can with a very simple life.

I enjoy outdoor activities including hiking, beach volleyball, running and bike riding. I also enjoy relaxing at home with a good book and meditating. And I most certainly enjoy talking about my favorite subject: our true nature as this One, Divine, Open Awareness, the unborn Source and Witness of all of creation!

In my life, I have always felt comfortable picking and choosing the ideas that I liked best so I certainly think that it's fine for you to do likewise. We all have our own point of view and this point of view will continue to develop as time unfolds. Perhaps you will be inspired to take a close look at what I have to offer and perhaps you will develop a deeper personal peace and bring forth a warmer love.
