Great start. I like.
There is also a neutral meaning to "savor":
Savor (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
1 : the taste or smell of something
2 : a particular flavor or smell
3 : a distinctive quality
Savor, savoring, savouring - (Princeton.wordnetweb.edu)
Tasting. Taking a small amount into the mouth to test its quality.
I'm thinking that in order to recognize samsara we need to be experientially aware of it, not just take someone's word for it. Through awareness practices we savor (taste/test) samsara for quality. We taste it by looking it spang in the eye, noting how it feels and how it moves the mind - and if we're really aware we observe the blade hidden in the honey each time before we reactively dive in. If not, we experience the dissatisfaction that lurks under the alluring honey - eventually learning to test (taste) elements of samsara with awareness before we give them a big juicy lick.
