From the Desk of George Barnard
August 23, 2009.
From 1945 until 1958 (the year I left home to go overseas)
my father studied in detail every newspaper he could lay his hands on.
He did so every evening. My dad was a serious middleweight
My mother frequently commented on her belief that precisely half of
what was in those papers was true, and precisely half was untrue. However,
no one knew which half was which. Consequently, after reading them each
evening, one was sure to be half as wise and twice as confused as at
the start of the day. My mom was a housewife and an occasional stand-up
Perhaps my dads attitude caused me to take nothing much for granted
unless I researched it, and perhaps my moms attitude was decisive
in my seriously disliking fiction, enjoying research and statistics.
James W. Riley, it is said, once wrote: When I see a bird that
walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call
that bird a duck. Obviously discerning about truth, James Riley,
nevertheless, did not enquire about which species of duck he saw, whether
it was male or female, its Latin name, mating habits, origin, or migration
habits. J.W.R. was rather casual about his ducks.
In contrast, the 11:11 Progress Group has done a great deal of research
regarding the Urantia Secondary Midwayers. We know that originally there
were 1,984 of these offspring of Adam and Eve, 1,111 of them that remained
loyal to Michael, although presently there are thousands more to assist
us. We know these planetary helpers to be multi-talented, work in pairs
or teams, are supervised by Machiventa Melchizedek, and that they time-prompt
Weve learned of them from Dr. Courtney Brown who notes them in
chapter 8 of his book, Cosmic Voyage. Much detail about the Midwayers
can be found in papers 77 and 114 of the Urantia Book, and even more
information is available from the 11:11 books written by George Barnard,
as well as what can be learned from the thousands of transcripts of
11:11 Progress Groups channeling efforts.
The Urantia Planetary Helpers are no longer described as conjecture,
but brilliant spiritual Teachers. They are not the doubtful notion of
the feeble-minded, but accomplished Healers. Also, they are not the
ever-illusive product of a misguided theory of some over-active minds,
but as real as you and I.
If you are awakened at precisely 11:11 PM, as do Midwayers, and as
streetlights blink on and off for you, as is caused by Midwayers, and
if you feel your hair being stroked as is done by Midwayers, by golly
it might be good manners to say hello and get to know the Midwayer that
has come to see you.
