Then there are three stages for the pupil, the mureed, who treads the spiritual path. The first stage is receptivity, taking that is given without saying, "This teaching I will accept and that I will not accept." The next stage is assimilating the teachings. And the third stage is fixing them in the mind and letting the mind see the reason of things; but this comes after assimilation. Thus the one who considers these three stages and goes through them carefully, securely -- the stage of receptivity, the stage of assimilation, and the stage of consideration -- will be the successful mureed on the path.
