In The Art of Respect by Cody Mark Hawkes, treating others with the dignity and respect they deserve begins with your own state of mind. If you cannot accept, love, and respect yourself it will be difficult for others to accept, love, and respect you. The most amazing concept to understand is that having the acceptance, love, and respect of yourself and those around you must also be reflected in the way you live. Humans have become so dependent on technological advances that they have forgotten how to coexist peacefully with their environment, the universe, their own way of life, other humans, as well as their own personal growth. You can find your place in the universe by getting back to your true nature and observing the beauty that exists all around us.
The Art of Respect by Cody Mark Hawkes is a very deep and interesting self-help guide that will make the reader rethink the way they live. There is much more to respect than having some simple basic manners. Understanding that the universe turns, life co-mingles, and humans are capable of more than what can be found on a screen is the first step in finding personal balance. I love how Hawkes doesn’t just throw a phrase on a page; instead, he gives personal examples that back up his claims with true experiences. I recommend The Art of Respect to everyone who is willing to take on some serious self-reflection and discover how to claim control over their own existence. I truly hope that Hawkes will write more of this sort of self-help guide. I will definitely be waiting to read it!
