Many handymen are taking heed of the tip to drive a golf cart Florida to work in Port Charlotte. The choice to drive a golf cart as opposed to some other mode of transportation to work is a better home tip then might be immediately apparent at first glance. This is true because driving any other mode of transportation (a car for example) is a much bigger undertaking than driving a golf cart. The obvious reason for this is because a golf cart is much smaller than the typical automobile. Its smaller size makes it much easier to maneuver around objects and and to navigate tight corners.
DRIVE A GOLF CART FLORIDA TO YOUR NEXT CONSTRUCTION JOB
When one drives a mode of transportation to a job site the most important goal is to arrive at the intended destination. Once that goal has been consistently achieved the handyman can then work to refine the technique. This can involve many different techniques unto itself. For example, the handyman might choose to drive to the job site using a different route than normal. The handyman might also choose to drive to the job site using a different vehicle than normal. This is where the golf cart comes in.
All of us here at the “Handyman Home Tips” blog are firm believers in driving a golf cart to the job site. This is true and there are no better golf carts than the golf carts that have their origin in the state of Florida. Everybody in the golf cart community knows that no better golf carts are made in any other part of the country (or world for that matter). And we all know that if you are going to drive a golf cart you might as well drive the best golf cart possible.
How to approach the mystery that is the drum pump and all its ramifications? In a sense it can never be approached. For when you get right down to it you (gentle reader) and I as well as everyone else are all the drum and the pump together. In fact you might say that there is only the drum and the pump. Although it seems on a surface level that the drum is separate from the pump and you and I are also separate. It takes effort to see the truth behind this illusion. Or you might say that dropping effort is the key to seeing through the illusion.
SEEING THROUGH THE DRUM PUMP ILLUSION
We may question why this illusion exists in the first place. If we are all one along with the drum and the pump why are we not fully aware of this fact? It has been suggested that we are living in an illusion because we chose to live in the illusion. There was something that we could experience in the illusion that we could not experience without the illusion. There is also the sense that whilst living within the illusion we can never really fully appreciate what it is like to live without the illusion.
It is important to realize that there can be no mistakes in this. The only sin (defined more as mistake or ignorance as opposed to a moral error) is to fall deeper into the illusion. It is almost as if we dove into the deep end of a pool and we are heading back towards the surface. Only once below the surface of the water we forget what it was like above the surface of the water. But in a sense we dove into the water in order to forget.
We shall never hope to solve the mystery of the tote pump though we shall doubtless spend many years in the process. Indeed, though we may be handy and though we be men as well, these twin attributes do nothing to clear the fog surrounding the true meaning of the tote pump. It is almost as if the fabric of reality had been designed to keep this meaning from being made manifest in our knowing. And if that is the case then we must come to terms with existing in this state of not knowing. The Buddha told us long ago that life is suffering (dukkha).
GRASPING AT KNOWING THE TOTE PUMP
And might we say that trying to know the true nature of the tote pump is really an attempt to know ourselves and our true nature. For as much as we inhabit these bodies and experience these egos can we really say that we know them? Do we make our heart pump blood through our veins? Do we make the hair spring forth from our scalps? No, these things simply happen and yet at the same time we have the sense that we are some how responsible for their happenings.
There is the tendency to take the off ramp of caring when one reaches this point. That is to say that when one finally realizes that the struggle is futile to then collapse in a state of learned helplessness. But this is not a desirable outcome either. If we cannot know the answer we must learn to accept that state of affairs. Not necessarily to give up in defeat but rather to cease the struggle entirely. In other words it is the struggle (the dukkha) that is the problem and its solution is to cease struggling. Only then (ironically) will we come to understand the true nature of the tote pump.
