The Words of The Mother, Vol. 14 A discovery in Morocco points to the
oldest Homosapiens fossils found so far. An international team of researchers uncovered 300,000 year-old fossil bones of Homo sapiens, a find tha is approximately 100,000 older than any other previously discovered Homosapiens fossils.The discovery, reported in two papers published June 8, 2017 in the journal Nature (here and here), was made at Jebel Irhoud, Morocco.
The team noted that the fossils reveal a complex evolutionary history of mankind that likely involved the entire African continent. Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin is a a palaeoanthropologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. Hublin said in a statement:We used to think that there was a cradle of mankind 200,000 years ago in east Africa, but our new data reveal that Homo sapiens spread across the entire African continent around 300,000 years ago.

It is NOT the time to plant anything new. It is NOT the time to refill your massive swimming pools. It is NOT the time to water the roads, as much as it helps to keep the dust down. It is NOT the time to water your lawns, or keep your ornamental gardens lush and green. It IS the time to prioritize your water usage, and have honest conversations within your communities about water usage in communal spaces. It IS the time to save water in every possible way, and to encourage respectfully others in the community to do the same." http://www.aurovilleradio.org/water-crisis/#.WTqfGJJ94cA We know the Divine and become the Divine, because we are That already in our secret nature.
