From Merriam-Webster.com/dictionary �" Transitive verb:

Embrace �" cherish, love, encircle, enclose. 1) To avail oneself of: welcome < embrace the opportunity to study further >

2) To take in or include as a part, item, or element of a more inclusive whole < charity embraces all acts that contribute to human welfare>

3) Charity embraces all acts of generous giving. It's a subject that embraces many areas of learning.

Acceptance �" An agreeing either expressly or by conduct to the act or offer of another so that a contract is concluded and the parties become legally bound. The quality or state of being accepted or acceptable: approval.

I begin with the definitions of these two most important words of becoming and standing strong in my new book, The Me I Never Was �" embrace and acceptance of oneself. If we are to be true to our soul's chosen life we must not quiver in our stance when the wind blows �" when the storm lifts the mighty ocean with waves of a tsunami's force, we must embrace and accept ourselves in totality. And those who are upon the ocean at times of turbulence who do not know the truth within, the sea inside of their soul will engulf them �" and sink all possibilities of knowing yourself fully into the bottom of the ocean's floor of uncertainties �" never knowing why they fought the battle to begin with. You must know who you are firstly before you can fight the battle toward your Oneness of self and defend your freedom's right.

My book gives readers the tools and confidence to discover the person they should be. In the wake of "religious freedom" laws in Indiana and Arkansas, it pulls from personal experiences and my professional background to teach others ways to develop their true selves and stray from society's labels.

When we look to those who wish to judge our chosen lives or creativity �" and they call themselves children of God �" they speak and act in total contrast to the words of the Son of God, Christ Jesus. We find in Matthews 7:1-5 KJV: "Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2) For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3) And why behold thou the mote that is in your brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4) Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5) Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote of thy brothers eye."

Brothers and sisters I tell you, "Know yourself �" take the journey back into your soul �" back into remembrance �" only then you will be able strip the garments that have been placed upon you since birth �" and in so doing you will find your childlike foundation of truth and purity. Once you have retrieved the key to your strength �" the child must be released back unto the Mother of Life �" whence it came. Then and only then you will be able to fight the prejudices of society as a full conscious spirit in "Mind, Body and Soul."

When we waiver �" when there is discord inclusively �" that energy will magnify to the outside proximity of our space. Each individual, whether finding themself homosexual or heterosexual �" they must know "The me �" they were born to be �" in all certainty, if they wish to be free." The intimacy, romance and Love must begin within ... you!

"Embrace yourself in completeness �" and the acceptance from others will not matter, because you have been empowered!" You have recognized ... The Me I Never Was.
