Self is like boundless sky. The experince of duality or mind, is like a jar; this is knowledge. Therefore, the experince of duality or mind neither have to be renounced by asceticism nor accepted as real,nor to be dissolved in yogic samadhi. The self, which is spirit is indescribable.But as an illustration only,it is like deep sleep. This is to show, the self, is the invisible substence and witness of mind. Therefore it is very much necessary for the seeker to realize the true fact that 'I' is not the self, but the invisible substence of the 'I' which is non dual spirit is the true self.

Seeker need not give up any thing. The absence of 'I' is not wisdom.Seeker has to get wisdom in the midst of experince of duality or 'I'. The experince of duality or mind has to be seen as mirage. And to achieve this seeker must analyze the three states.

The yogi is only a practitioner who is trying to get rid of the world,but cannot overcome the duality. Yogic experiences are mere hallucination not wisdom.

You almost succeed in giving vibrant message by not considering practice, meditation, belief, logic , state, stage to recognise onelsef. I think analysis of 3 states is also out of consideration in recognising natural nature of I. Just think it out!

Be in the remembrance of Easiness.

Think it out instead of analyzing? They sound the same to me; equally futile. You must look with better eyes than the mind can provide.

I don't see where he implied 'I Am' is indicating states and stages. Don't know where you got that.
