looking at the princess in a different light now. i always thought of her as a spoiled brat whose sensitivity to a pea under piles and piles of mattresses was somewhat exaggerated.
but then that princess could be you. or it could be me. it could be anybody twisting and turning through life’s uncomfortable bed simply because there seems to be something wrong underneath it all. you don’t see it but you can feel it. a gut feeling.
small as it is, the pea symbolizes something bigger than life. it represents the truth — about who you really are and what you ought to be.
99% of the souls living in this world is probably restless right now. lucky are they who have found the peace.
