To Give and Receive Divine Love

By Sri Harold Klemp

Soul moves through the evolutionary process in a number of different forms, including those of animals and birds. These are some of the many different ways in which Soul gains experience, thereby gaining expression of Its divine self.

In the process, Soul must learn to receive love and to give love.

One of the best ways to learn how to give and receive divine love is to chant HU as a daily spiritual exercise. Simply sit comfortably where no one will disturb you, close your eyes, and gaze gently into your Spiritual Eye. This is the point between your eyebrows, at the center of your forehead. Then sing HU softly on your outgoing breath.

As you do this, feel within the love that God has for you and the love that you have for God. This is why HU is sometimes called a love song to God.

Few people take the time to simply sit still and contemplate for twenty minutes to a half hour each day. Yet when you do this, you open your inner senses to the Light and Sound of God—to the pure love of God.

And as you do the spiritual exercises and get more of the Sound and Light of Divine Spirit flowing into you, what are you going to do with it?

You can’t spend your life in contemplation of the higher truths without doing anything to bring a little light to your fellow man. One way to start is this: Simply give back some service of love to the world, your friend, your neighbor; and it may be simply by doing a good deed every day that no one ever knows about.
