The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

There are three stages for the pupil, the mureed, to tread on the spiritual path. The first stage is receptivity: to take all that is given, without saying, "This I will take and this I will not take." The next stage is assimilation. The third stage is to put it in the mind and let the mind see the reason of things, but this after the assimilation. The one who goes consciously and securely through these three stages -- receptivity, assimilation, and consideration -- will be the successful mureed in the path.
