Living the Paradox of Enlightenment: Ancient Nondual Wisdom for Today by Thomas Razzeto

Your true self is the One Divine Awareness!

This book’s most passionate plea is for you to wake up to your true self as pure awareness. We have all heard it said that you are not a human being having a spiritual experience and instead you are a spiritual being having a human experience. Yet you are not a being of any kind, spiritual or physical. You are pure awareness! And most importantly, your awareness is the One Awareness – the Divine Awareness – and as such, it is the only reality that was not created. This Divine Awareness is the source of all of creation and it is the only witness to it. This is your true fundamental self and this Source-Awareness is looking out of your eyes right now!

This is a nondual or mystical understanding and it is one of the core aspects of enlightenment. Another aspect is the ability to flow in harmony with all that life brings forth. This book will help you become more skillful in the art of acceptance and in doing so, you will more easily experience a deep and lasting personal peace.

Yet you were not created just to sit still in a state of peaceful acceptance. You are here to fearlessly dive head first into your life in your own unique way. Many of us have heard the phrase “you create your own reality,” but this does not mean that the universe is your personal mail order catalog, simply waiting for you to clearly make up your mind and place your order. If you are open to a deeper understanding of that phrase, then you are ready to make some real progress. When you release your limiting beliefs about yourself, the world, and how you fit into it, you will be able to completely surrender to your own divine wisdom. This will allow you to spontaneously put your values of kindness and caring into action with an aliveness that cannot be matched!

So what do you think? Are you inspired to learn more about the paradox of enlightenment? If so, this book just might offer you the clarity you have been looking for!

Thomas Razzeto is one of the newest and freshest voices in the genre of mystical spirituality and he is specifically focused on what is often called the nondual understanding. Thomas easily digs deeply into its core to reveal both the essential wisdom and the heart-felt compassion that all true sages embody when they are genuinely engaged in the world. The first time Thomas heard these nondual teachings was when he attended one of Timothy Conway’s satsang in 2005. (“Satsang” means “Divine assembly” or “association in Truth” and it is the traditional forum for the nondual perspective.) Thomas continues to attend these weekly meetings and they provide the foundation for all his writing. Thomas teaches his book, Living the Paradox of Enlightenment, as a class for the Center for Lifelong Learning, which is a part of Santa Barbara City College, the highest ranked community college in the United States. In September 2012, Thomas spoke for the prestigious lecture series, Mind and Supermind, which is run by SBCC. Graham Hancock selected Thomas as his Author of the Month for March 2012. Thomas has spoken publicly numerous times, both in person and on the radio. You can find more of his delightful and easy to understand work at his website,
