When The Chatter Ceases

When the story drops away
When the chatter ceases to be
When the drama and ups & downs dry up
When the endless dissatisfaction and seeking stops
When the feeling of next, next, next is gone
What are you left with then?

This
Just this
This that is everything and nothing
This that is life

Everything that you once knew
Or thought you knew
Cease to feel relevant

And yet here you still are
Aware
Alive
Here

Its a leap into the unknown
A free-fall in life
Nothing to hold on to
Nowhere to put a stake in the sand

Fresh in every moment

No past
No future
No next
No present
No now
Just This

Beautiful, alive Isness
