December is a month of reflection of the past year. It is also one of the busiest time of years. This time of year also can make us become anxious and stressed. The truth is that we are never ever alone. In the book the untethered soul by Michael Singer, discuss how to attain inner freedom. "Ramana Maharshi, a great teacher in the yogic tradition, would continuously and sincerely ask the question "Who am I?" He taught that this was more important than reading books, learning mantras, or going to holy places. Just ask, "Who am I? Who sees when I see? Who hears when I hear? Who knows that I am aware? Who am I?" Who is having all these physical, emotional and mental experiences? So you contemplate this question a little deeper. This is done by letting go of the experiences and noticing who is left. You will begin to notice who is experiencing the experience. Eventually, you will get to a point within yourself where you realize that you, the experiencer, have a certain quality. And that quality is awareness, consciousness, an intuitive sense of existence. You know that you're in there. You don't have to think about it; you just know. You can think about it if you want to, but you will know that you're thinking about it. You exist regardless, thoughts or no thoughts. So while this time may be stressful and chaotic, remind yourself why you're here. You're here to have an experience and return to the source, making it richer and fuller.
