LISN is the acronym for the ‘Linked In Spirit Network’.
LISN is also a verb; to LISN is to be aware of the presence of another, to welcome their spirit into a safe place, to hear from the heart not the ears, and LISNing can be done in complete silence, over distance, and without response.
LISNing is something primarily internal, where the source of love always offers connection. You can LISN to yourself with equal effect, because there is always the presence of the sublime entity/energy of the Divine available as an additional participant of all prayer, good intention or heart felt desire for the betterment of another.
A metaphor is a figure of speech that directly refers to one thing by mentioning another to provide clarity or identify hidden similarities between two ideas.
Metaphors show up in literature, poetry, music, and writing, but also in speech. If you hear someone say “metaphorically speaking,” it probably means that you shouldn’t take what they said as the truth, but as more of an idea.
