Living On Purpose: Reality, Unreality and the Life of the Body
Keywords:borderline personality organization, soul-murder, unreality, psychosis
AbstractThis article is the author’s account of the experience of choosing to live the life of his body, even when that means entering a soulless truth of being. The forces which generate such a state are examined, as well as the dynamics which emerge from and maintain such a state of being. This paper attempts to provide a framework for understanding, in an immediate felt way, the experience of the person living in this reality, one common in people organized as a borderline personality. It also attempts to illuminate some of the grave difficulties faced by the therapist trying to work with people so afflicted.
