HU: A Love Song to God
HU is woven into the language of life. It is the Sound
of all sounds. It is the wind in the leaves, falling rain, thunder
of jets, singing of birds, the awful rumble of a tornado. . . . Its
sound is heard in laughter, weeping, the din of city traffic, ocean
waves, and the quiet rippling of a mountain stream. And yet, the
word HU is not God. It is a word people anywhere can use to address
the Originator of Life.
Experience HU, the Sound of Soul
A Love Song to God
You have the potential for greater happiness, love, and understanding. Singing HU can bring these to you—through the Light and Sound of God.
Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, an ancient name for God, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.
Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you can sing HU to become happier and more secure in God's love.
A Divine Connection
Eckankar teaches that a spiritual essence, the Light and Sound, connects everyone with the heart of God. This Light and Sound is the ECK, or the Holy Spirit. Direct experience with these twin aspects of God opens the deep spiritual potential within each of us. The Light and Sound purify, uplift, and direct us on our journey home to God.
Singing HU draws us closer in our state of consciousness to the Divine Being. This is its purpose. It is for those who desire spiritual love, freedom, wisdom, and truth.
An Invitation to Sing HU
You are invited to try this simple spiritual exercise. It has helped people of many different faiths open their hearts more fully to the uplifting presence of God.
To do the exercise, first get comfortable. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Next, gently put your attention on your inner visual screen, where daydreams and images come to you.
With your eyes closed, sing HU (pronounced
like the word hue) as a song of love.
You may notice a feeling of peace, warmth, and
comfort. You may also recognize the presence
of the Divine through greater spiritual insights
into your daily life. There are many ways
to experience the love of God.
When you sing HU and sit in quiet contemplation, you might also perceive
the inner Light and Sound. The Light may appear as brightness or colors
on your inner visual screen. The Sound may be musical or the sounds of
nature, such as the wind or the ocean. However you experience the presence
of God, it is bringing you a broader understanding of the life you lead.
Upliftment throughout Your Day
In The Golden Heart, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 4, Harold Klemp
explains how HU can help you see your life from this higher viewpoint.
“As you chant the name of God, with love, for twenty minutes a day, the bindings and bands that constrain Soul will begin to unwind. Not all at once, but very slowly, at a rate you can understand and accept. As these bindings are released, Soul rises in spiritual freedom.
“As Soul, you are like a balloon that rises above the ground. The higher you go, the farther you can see. And the farther you can see, the better you can plan your life.”
