Stage 1 The realization of a life in which one is identified with the form life and the soul identifies with material aspects. In this one does not know oneself as soul. One reaches full personality expression at the end of this stage.

Stage 2 is where discrimination of one’s duality is realized and the often painful work of the disciple begins in which one learns the discrimination of form and soul life. One realizes one is spirit incarnate in matter - one gradually shifts the centre of gravity to that of soul and grows in realization of the condition in which duality is embraced and is no more.

This is followed by stage 3. The higher realization of unity follows where the sense of soul and body is lost to a sense of unity and new conditions prevail where one begins the recognition of deity at play.

Martin follows this by extensive use of an egg metaphor to describe and elaborate these stages.
