The baby is in pain, completely. We want to console it (faster than we want). Do we want to console this away: being completely in pain? Being at one with pain? The baby accepts consolation, allows itself to be consoled. It takes what comes: pain, consolation. No, the pain is it. Consolation comes from outside. But consolation in our arms has also an inner side, is an inward, indwelling feature of this world. A doubt, which does not interfere with consolation: the baby’s pain and our wish to console have nothing to do with each other.
