Learn, contemplate, meditate

Assimilation of the Truth into our life begins with the initial stages of study and analysis. Later, we contemplate this information, and as we become more accustomed and adapted to it, we will develop our understanding through meditation.

Applying the Truth is essential because, unless we bring it into daily life as an integral aspect of our being in whichever ways we are capable, it will remain mere theory. Intellectual analysis, though pertinent and inescapable, will not ignite the alchemical changes that are necessary to attain stability and accomplishment in practice.

First, get the intellectual understanding, next train in what you have understood, and finally attain stability in it by becoming accustomed to the trainings. Learn, contemplate, meditate; habituate them into your being.
