What is a lens? Biologically, it is a transparent structure behind the iris of the eye that focuses light entering the eye on the retina. Optically, it is a piece of glass or plastic shaped so as to focus or spread light rays that pass through it, often for the purpose of forming an image. Lenses can be used in conjunction with each other to correct the path of light in order to make an image come into focus. It can be a combination of two or more such lenses, as in a camera, telescope or glasses and contact lenses.These are known as compound lenses. A lens can be electronic as well when it is a device that causes radiation to converge or diverge by an action analogous to that of an optical lens. The system of electric fields used to focus electron beams in electron microscopes is an example of a lens.
Lenses are basically devices that help channel visible energy, or light, in order to provide a clear and distinct sharpness or focus of that energy to be perceived by an observer. But what about other energies that are not visible? How do we use a lens to focus them in order to comprehend and understand their purpose in our lives? And ultimately, what is the lens that we use to focus those energies? Is it our mind concentrating on something, contemplating its possibilities or meditating on the probabilities of inner fulfillment? Or is it our heart of hearts channeling what we feel is right for us above and beyond all else?
A lens focuses energies and two lenses combine to focus them even further to yield the sharpest and clearest picture. When we use our minds to focus on our desired outcomes we concentrate on a ‘picture’ of the end result, see it manifesting in different ways and finally let it all go to be fulfilled. When we use our hearts to focus on our desired outcomes we allow those creative energies to flow through us unfettered by our beliefs of how they will manifest and let go of any attachment to how they will manifest. By using the mind and heart as compound lenses that focus the energy of Divine love we ‘project’ our desires into the unseen energy and matter described by scientists as ‘dark energy’ and ‘dark matter’. They are referred to as such because they are NOT perceived by our senses.
Our senses receive ‘ranges’ of electromagnetic and mechanical frequencies that our nervous systems interpret in our brains as ‘copies’ of reality. Reality to us, in essence, is essentially what we ‘perceive’ and NOT what it actually is. We observe the facts of
Our experiences over the course of our lives program our belief systems in our subconscious or reactive minds. Our conscious minds, in tandem with our hearts, become the lenses through which we project what we desire in our worlds. Balancing our thoughts and emotions is accomplished by fine tuning the focus of our mind and heart ‘lenses’. Through regular and consistent periods of eating properly, exercise, movement, learning and meditation we fine tune our minds and hearts with our bodies to ‘clear the channel’ of the projection of Divine love from our inner spirits into our external worlds. If the ride is too rough, your channel is NOT fully open. If it is smooth and automatic, your channel is clear to express Divine love unfettered by your erroneous beliefs.
When your channel is clear you become a beacon of light that attracts all of those whose channels are cluttered. They will challenge you at every turn, prey upon your understanding and burden your with their needs. Why? Because they want the find the ‘quick fix’ to be where you are. They want to eat the pie without putting in all the work to make it. It is their ego’s ‘reacting’ to your clear expression of Divine truth. Be kind, understanding and giving to all of those who seek to drain your energy while maintaining your open channel.
How do you do this? You focus your ‘lenses’ on the end result and help others become fulfilled by sharing Divine love with all. Give others encouragement and maintain your peace. Trust completely in the Divine to move Divine order in such a way to bring about the best for all concerned. We are co-creators in this omniverse and we CAN create beauty, peace and love for all. It’s not about believing we can; it’s about loving the Divine enough to KNOW we can! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
