Excerpt About Individuation Narcissism
Individuation Narcissism is Associated with the Lack of Development of the Personal EssenceIndividuation narcissism is associated with the lack of development of what we call the "Personal Essence." This is a manifestation of essential Presence in which -- like Essential Identity -- we experience "I am" but here, the emphasis in experience is more on the "am" than on the "I." It is a Presence of fullness, substantiality and well being. I am, as Personal Presence; I experience myself as a person, but this person is not patterned by self-representations. The Personal Essence is a Presence of the self as a person, a human individual with unique qualities and capacities. This person is an ontological Presence of pure consciousness.
