Imagine if, in the story of the Princess and the Pea, the princess had tried to make her bed more cushy? If she had added more mattresses and feather ticks to the pile, it wouldn’t have made her any more comfortable. Not until she removed the pea from beneath the very bottom mattress would she have gotten a good night’s sleep.
In this way of looking at the Princess’s story, that little pea is the issue under the issue. Let’s see how we can find our own “pea” without piling up twenty mattresses first.
