START YOUR OWN RELIGION embodies the Timothy Leary's core attraction--expansive religious (personal) freedom. Become the highest version of yourself The purpose of life is religious discovery. return to the temple of God--your ow body. Get of out your mind and get high. Religious living is conscious here-and-now aliveness. He urges readers to drop out, turn on tune in. Drop out and detach from external social drams. Turn on with a sacrament that returns you on to your body. Tune in and be reborn. Leary's message thrilled the youth of the 1960s and it is still appealing today.
