78. Dark Sugar Earth and the help by music roses
»Oh, I am glad to read your letter. And your music roses I love very much. I can feel the fine smell of the roses in my heart.
Thank you Palma, my composer, my painter, my deep old love.“
Palmina gave him a tender kiss. Palma il Giovane liked that.
In this 23rd hour of the day (11 p.m.) they sat in their soft seats of the Peony Gondola and in their common vision they say also this:
* * *
On the heaven Saint Lucille appeared standing on a cloud, pink white shining.
She prayed with her hands like the saint virgin.
Then she transformed herself into the Chinese Princess Miao Shan *) and smiled very fine and appearing slowly as the Guan Yin *) of Asia.
She showed Palma and Palmina a secret vision:
They saw that Palmina did rehearse again in her little room for her next concert.
Palma send her a music-flower and it landed on her fingers to heal her because she has pains on her little fingers. Birds sung very fresh and friendly from outside and she heard it and smiled to them.
Palmina could understand the birds and their love-messages from Palma to her.

»Kuan-Yin or Guan Yin
Known as one of the „four great Bodhisattva“
(Shambala Dictionary of Buddhismand Zen, 119)
of Buddhism, Kuan-Yin is an important element of Buddhism.
Ever-present in temples and iconography, she is venerated throughout Asia.
02 – picture – Guan Yin
Kuan Yin (also spelled Kwan Yin or Quan Yin and known as Kuan Shih Yin), is known as the Goddess of Compassion & Healing. She is one of the most popular deities in all of Asia. Her name in Chinese roughly translates as „The One who Hears the Cries of the World“. She is the most beloved and revered of the Chinese dieties. Kuan Yin is the Divine Mother we all long for: merciful, tender, compassionate, loving, protecting, caring, healing, and wise. She quietly comes to the aid of her children everywhere. Her mantra is ‚Om Mani Padme Hum.‘ (that is, ‚Hail the Jewel -or pearl- in the Lotus.‘) Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokitesvara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion. In Asia, statues of Kuan Yin can be found in front of, or on the grounds of, many Buddhist temples.
Just as Catholic Christianity has provided an antidote to pure theological patriarchy by encouraging the reverence of the Virgin Mary****), so Chinese Buddhism evolved a feminine bodhisattva, or Buddha-to-be, named Kuan Yin. And just as Mary captured the hearts of Catholic worshipers, so Kuan Yin far outstripped the male bodhisattvas in popularity. Both in Japan (as Kwannon, who is often pictured as male) and in pre-revolutionary China, this semidivine being was honored in virtually every home; she was the most powerful being in the entire Chinese pantheon.

****) Sain Virgin Mary – wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary,_mother_of_Jesus
»Mary[ was a 1st-century BC Galilean Jewish woman of Nazareth, and the mother of Jesus, according to the New Testament and the Quran.
The gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament and the Quran describe Mary as a virgin; according to Christian teaching she conceived Jesus while a virgin, through the Holy Spirit. The miraculous conception took place when she was already betrothed to Joseph.She accompanied Joseph to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born«
She rehearsed all the day. During that her mother tried to buy some tickets for the ship back to Venice.
»Oh,… the last tickets for 3 persons bought your husband, dear Signora«, said the Ship Officer.
– »You are sure, that my husband bought 3 tickets to Venice for next week?«
»Yes, it had been the last 3 tickets. I remember very good, because he wanted to buy 4 tickets. He said ‚We need more place for us 3…‘. The tickets are very expensive, because all people seems to leave this beautiful island, but why…?«, the officer said.
Palmina’s mother looked wondering, but she didn’t tell what she heard. She often was very shy, she was educated after the strict traditional education (family secret).
»Thank you, officer. My husband knows what he did. Thank you officer. I wish you a good day. Buy, buy.«
As she came back to their family house, Palmina was still doing rehearsal with her lute.
»Oh, my talented daughter. She wants to be perfect at the concert in that new Venice-Titian-Art-Gallery from the Dogan’s palace.« She looked up to the open window.
»Something is going on in the heart of my girl. She plays her Lute with so much love. As woman I can feel that. It remembers me as I was in love to ‚HIM‘, but this is long time ago… Now he talks not even with me to inform me that he has bought 3 tickets as I asked him for that today in the morning. What is going on there?«
* * *
After that Princess Miao Shan, appearing as Guan Yin, she showed them this secret:
* * *
Palmina rehearsed till the late evening.
Father had his ‚backer-business-meeting‘, but he didn’t come home.
So Palmina’s mum went to look to the little restaurant where the ‚business-talk‘ started today.
A high-security-officer stood there for the security of that area.
It seemed to be quite there.
»Ni hao«, Palmina greeted the officer and he greeted also friendly back.
As mum entered the restaurant she found him alone at this table and she sat to him.
»…Ni hao. Did the business went good today?«, she asked him.
»..Ah, you here?…Hm,..the business. Yes but I wait for the next business partner. Please go back home… Women should not be at this talk…«
Then he said nothing to her. He looked not very friendly.
Then she went away but she sat on a far table behind a big porcelain-flower-vase to see what her husband is waiting for. »Something is wrong…«, she thought.
After a while a lot of man came sitting on the neighbour table of her husband.
On the neighbour table was a lonely man drinking too much wine.
So the man came to him, gave him »Dark Sugar Earth« into his wine and he did not realize that. As he drunk the dark sugar earth he lost the control of himself.
He sung and the group of men sung with him.
»Qin aide peng you! Dear friend, did you bring us today your money and Jade and silver…for us – for our Church of Security? You know our church was founded in the mystic land of MeiGuo-Land! From their all Missioner are going to the world to expand ‚In dark sugar earth we thrust’…«
»La,la,la…MeiGuo-Land, MeiGuo-Land, MeiGuo-Land, the land of all free churches…
The land of Dark Sugar Earth,
give me more of that dark sugar earth!
I give you my Jade.
Give me dark sugar earth – I give you my silver!
Give my dark sugar earth – and I give you all my family money!
La, La, La… Let us sing.
Waiter…, I pay the wine of all guests in this restaurant….Come all! Drink with me wine – Venite, Venite…«
Palmina’s mother was shocked., »Dark sugar earth? Mr. Cambridge is not a European – he is from the mystic land of how did he say…?«
Palmina’s mum ran out to inform the high-security-officer who is still standing outside of the restaurant. Mum wanted to help this poor lonely Cyprian citizen.
»If they take his family money, his family is ruined…they gave him ‚Dark sugar earth’…«
– »Dark sugar earth? This is strict forbidden on our island! Quick…they have to be arrested… Let’s get them!«
Other security-officer came from other streets to assist.
Palmina’s mum talked so outside the restaurant to the officer and he saluted her and came in and searched for the criminal group of man.
»Where are the Dark-sugar-earth-people…?« the officer asked holding his weapon of the 16th century. But nobody seemed to know where the criminal group of man is.
Palmina’s father said cool nothing. Palmina’s mother didn’t want to believe what she saw.
»Husband, you did see it also, isn’t it? They gave him ‚Dark sugar earth‘ and then they took all Jade, Silver, and Money from him….I saw it…all saw it, isn’t it?«
But all in the restaurant did not say anything. All this guests who drunk free-wine, paid by the poor Cyprian man, did refuse to drink their glass wine, as if they where afraid that »dark sugar earth« is also in that wine.
The officer asked fast »Is there a 2nd exit?«
»Here..there!« a lady from the restaurant« answered.
The officers run with their weapon and tried to follow the criminals of the »Church of Security«.
Too late: they run down to the sea and took a boat in this dark night.
»Why didn’t you help your poor table neighbour, husband? The Security Officer was standing outside…You had to call for help!«, Palmina’s mum asked very disappointed.
But »HE« did not answer…
»He lost now all his Jade,
he lost all his Silver,
and he lost all the whole family money –
He is now a poor man – and his children are poor now also, his wife is poor also…
No one wants now to talk with them…And the criminals will lie about them and will say ‚No,no, they are rich… they are not victims of the dark-sugar-earth-social-dark-network..they are soooooo rich….‘
Why didn’t you inform the safety-officer. Should all people in the world now think:
On that island only criminals have a free live and all other have to follow strict rules. This is ‚correct‘ – this is ’not correct‘- Talk only with THIS and not with THEM – We should always follow rules on that island, but no one puts these criminals into jail…?
…Is that the future of our beautiful island? Is it what you teach to our son…?
Is he a member of that ‚Church of security‘?…
Did you allow him to go to this fake religion?…«
But HE did not answer. He looked around, his nose up like being arrogant. And he ignores his wife. He looked around as she is not his wife. He looked searching around the restaurant as he waits for another person…
A high-safety-security-officer asked the waiter of that restaurant: »Did this criminals often came to your restaurant?«
– »Oh,noo..today they came the first time. But this man, over there, he is with a false name, he is member of the ‚Church of security‘ and the ‚dark sugar earth social network….Over there…Do you see him….He tried to pay me 2000 Venetian Dollars that I should not tell anybody that he is often here. He is collecting information about rich families of that island for Mr.Cambridge and reading their private letters and also destroying it. He is often with rich families here and he seems also to give them sometimes this ‚dark sugar earth‘ – I heard this sugar is dangerous: It is the reason of diabetes, adipositas and caries and the people loose control of themselves and they wont more and more of this ‚dark sugar earth‘.
Here are the 2000 Venetian Dollars – I don’t want this money«
»Thank you for all that information, Signora. We have to inform the local authorities about this man… How is his fake name in the ‚dark sugar earth network’…«, the Officer said and thought: „»We need to observe this man for a short time to find out which criminal network he has… «
The Waiter gave the 2000 Venetian Dollar to the officer and the criminal man saw this. He stood up and went fast out of the restaurant.
The officer gave three other officers with weapons directives to follow this man discretely and silently and if he runs away he should be arrested.
* * *
As Miao Shan – Guan Yin – showed them this secret, Palmina was very sad.
»Oh no,…my father is guilty on this poor man. He did not help this man and his family… Oh no, oh…noooooo.. how respect-less he is to my mum….Yes, he is a backer… But also backers has a feeling for honour and correctness….a real backer would help in this situation…My father is only interested in money, money, money… I hope his son is not member of that ‚dark sugar earth social-network‘.
Oh, no… I always thought, that my father is an authority because he knows the difference between good and evil. He is strict to correct people and speechless against injustice people.«
* * *
After that, the Guan Yin showed them also:
At late night Palmina’s father was very cruel to the poor Chinese women.
She was in the 1st floor of that restaurant. He was violent to her and she cried.
She does not know what happened in the restaurant below.
She does not know how he really is to others.
She was very shy and he often hurts her cruelly.
She does not know that he is a backer-business-man and
she does not know that he is here with his wife and with his daughter.
* * *
As Palmina saw this in the Peony-Gondola Vision, she saw the first time how cruel father was to this poor Chinese women and she cried.
»Poor women. If we could help her at this day….But it is now years ago…«
Palma put his arm around her and tried to help Palmina covering her with is heartfelt love.
»What did your father had to do with this poor women…«
»Maybe he left our family for her years ago…«
»In the year 1571 our island was taken by the Ottomans by 60.000 troops and they killed all people there… we had only to move back to Venice to save our lives. Maybe the little poor lady went to an other country and waited for HIM there.
Yes, maybe father left us all because of her…
But he was also so violent to her than to us – to me and to mum…«
»Yes, maybe, Palmina, and his son went also with him…he is maybe also a member of the ‚dark sugar earth‘ – social-network and has the permission to read and erase letters of other persons…«
»Oh no, this Mr. Cambridge destroyed our family… We will never be a family again…I am so lucky to be with you Palma…«
After a while of silence she said: »Palma?..«
»Did you know that mum likes you?…«
Palma turned his face to her and smiled.
Then he hold her soft-strongly with his arm and kissed her the first time longer.
And both hugged and their hearts connected, much intensive then ever.

Saint Lucia, »Sante Lucia«, standing on a pink-white cloud, smiled to them down and her eyes looking friendly like the Chinese Princess Mio Shan and she sent their blessings to them.
They heard a beautiful music like that:
