The whole universe is vibration.  By conducting life from upright principles, observing sensation  and frequencies in the framework of the body, as it happens without reaction from our 5 sense doors of perception or mind, our faculty of awareness wakes up  and the ability to penetrate  into our timeless wisdom unfolds, giving us peace and liberation from our suffering  and pain .”  – Mark McAuliffe
