Create Your Own Religion is a call to arms--an open invitation to question all the values, beliefs, and worldviews that humanity has so far held as sacred in order to find the answers we need to the very practical problems facing us. Writer, philosopher, and professor of comparative religion, Daniele Bolelli, leads the reader through three thousand years of mythology, misogyny, misinformation, and the flat-out lies about "revealed truth" that continue to muddle our ability to live a peaceful life, free of guilt and shame and the ultimate fear of death. "Our worldviews are in desperate need of some housecleaning," says Bolelli. "We enter the 21st century still carrying on our backs the prejudices and ways of thinking of countless past generations. What worked for them may or may not still be of use, so it is our job to make sure to save the tools that can help us and let go of the dead weight."

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.

An Arrogant Nation That Creates Its Own Reality

Americans seem prone to create their own reality in situations that have faced them over the past several years and this arrogance cost the country dearly. Three events stand out as prime examples this arrogance. The first of these events was the war in Iraq which was based on the false reality that the country possessed weapons of mass destruction and had ties to terrorist organizations. The second example was the financial crisis of 2008 which was precipitated by the invention of new and complicated investment vehicles. The last example is the current Trump administration which was filled with falsehoods during the campaign and his first years in office, such that one could not believe anything that this administration said. This book is going to focus on religious reasons for this situation as I believe that it is the Christian religion that is largely at fault for this condition. It is religion that has set up most Americans to believe our leaders when they outright lie and claim to know things beyond what the evidence will support and create a false reality that eventually comes crashing down to disrupt American life. If our nation is ever going to be great it must quit living in a fantasy world and give up a belief in magic as far as its future is concerned. Decisions in government and business must be based on reality as it is and not on what we arrogantly think we can create. The two go together as the more we try and create our own reality the less able we are to come to grips with the reality that actually exists. The place to start is by recognizing the role the Christian religion has played in this phenomenon and letting go of the fantasies that comprise this religion and live a secular life that finds meaning and purpose in this world rather than in some hereafter. We will not successfully deal with all the problems with which we are faced and have a political and economic system that works for everyone until this happens.

This lively book focuses on how different Jewish, Muslim, and Christian communities engage with new media. Rather than simply reject or accept new media, religious communities negotiate complex relationships with these technologies in light of their history and beliefs. Heidi Campbell suggests a method for studying these processes she calls the "religious-social shaping of technology" and students are asked to consider four key areas: religious tradition and history; contemporary community values and priorities; negotiation and innovating technology in light of the community; communal discourses applied to justify use. A wealth of examples such as the Christian e-vangelism movement, Modern Islamic discourses about computers and the rise of the Jewish kosher cell phone, demonstrate the dominant strategies which emerge for religious media users, as well as the unique motivations that guide specific groups.

Spirituality is not about renouncing the material world. Rather it is realizing it and enjoying it from a different vantage point. Once you realize your true nature — you will be burning the torch of your life joyfully from both ends — spiritually and materially, enjoying the glitter and glow. Self-engineering is a process — a joyful journey within to realize who you really are. It is a personal inner revolution on the voyage to vibrant happiness that changes the way you are and the way you live the precious gift of life. The way an engineer simplifies things to make life comfortable — you will engineer your inner world to make life an easier, ecstatic, natural and blissful experience. Self-engineering is like going directly to the manufacturer, to the Creator. Instead of going to a small street mechanic to solve all your life issues.
