Practice and Reflection: Dependent Origination, Sankharas

Sankharas are Volitional Impulses that express Ignorance. To explore this in practice, bring attention to your daily life choice points, areas where you decide to do one course of action instead of another. This can be as simple as following a train of thought or responding to an email or text. Reflecting either at that decision point or afterward, can you sense the intention behind that action? Can you discern if that choice flows from ignorance or wisdom? Broaden the definition of action to include thinking, speaking, communicating or moving your body.
