It seems apparent that there are three stages on this path. The pilgrim learns to understand that he is, after having understood that as an I-concept he is not. Then, only then, he comes to know that nevertheless he is not, for nothing is, not even he. And finally he realizes that in consequence of that and in a sense inconceivable before, he is.
Hence the formula:
I am: I am not, therefore I am.
