AT THIS STAGE, HE IS BLESSED
The first is the stone stage. One feels unconsciously drawn toward God or the God-Man. Here, the initiative is entirely with me. One feels attracted to me as a particle of iron to the magnet.
The second is the worm stage. Herein the mind constantly wriggles like a worm. The person worships me, yet sometimes disbelieves me. He adores me; he distrust me! Doubts and devotion go together. The pull of love, however, prevails in the end. In this phase, various types of impressions are executed.
The third is the dog stage. The dog has absolute faith in the master. He just moves with his master here, there, anywhere. In a sense, he has no will of his own. He only knows to follow the master without ifs and buts. Once a lover arrives at this stage, he is blessed.
