Practice and Reflection: Consciousness, Dependent Origination

Bring attention to when you are reactive or emotional. Reflect [on how] contact triggered that reactivity. See if you can recall a particular thought, sound, sight, sensation, smell, or taste. Without that contact, would the reactivity have arisen? Now more subtly, try to recall the consciousness or awareness that was receptive to that contact. For example, if the trigger was a word, hearing consciousness was engaged. See if you can sense the flavoring of that consciousness that inclined you toward reactivity.
