Excerpt About Idealization
The support that emerges when we go through the narcissistic helplessness is a manifestation of Being which is this whole dimension of Will.

Recognizing that the support that resolves the idealizing transference is an essential manifestation of Being, makes it clear that there is no way to gain true support from external sources. It is an aspect of our very Being, and the most that an external source may provide is guidance towards recognizing it within ourselves.
