"We never change reality, but we sure affect its latency"
We can't change reality. Ever. It's already happening. And it's always been happening, and always will be!
Current reality is happening precisely and irrevocably according to the conditions of what happened before. We certainly can't change any of that. And the reality we're thinking about changing is utter fantasy and will never occur. No matter what we wish the future to be, it is most surely a latent state of the reality we're in, and will also unfold from current conditions precisely and irrevocably in compliance with how reality unfolds.
So here we are amid reality, powerless to change it, but all along affecting its latent development through our behavior, and living precisely and irrevocably with the consequences. In other words, reality is entirely in control of reality, responds to the reality of our presence, and develops as only reality could. We're not driving, we're just along for the ride, messing with the controls. Our only hope of experiencing reality somewhat as we envision it (or not eventually running our human car into the ditch) is to understand reality's terms for its latent development and behave accordingly.
For example, at any moment of an unfolding life we may ask, are we latently miserable or in harmony? What do we understand about latent harmony, and how do we behave to ensure it comes to pass instead of misery? Might that require striving to be in harmony with reality, on its terms, as it happens, as this is our only means and opportunity? Amazingly, fittingly, reality informs us of our success or failure through the latent development of harmony or misery.
