01 / 63 The Creative, Heaven
Assertion (Single-Mindedness, Self-contained, totalising)
"CH'IEN: spirit power, creative and destructive; unceasing forward motion; dynamic, enduring, untiring; firm, stable; heaven, soverign, father; also: dry-up, parched, exhausted, cleared away. The ideogram: sprouts or vapors rising from the ground and sunlight, both fecundating moisture and scortching drought." ERANOS p94
"[Perseverence doubled - single-mindedness].
Heaven moves continuously.
using this fundamental power, one never needs to stop and rest."
Hexagram 01 is both excessive but also inspirational in that filled with energy, the need for balance is achieved through continuous interaction with the outside, where each sensation is an energy release. This is an extreme state, but with controlled release of the pent-up forces it can be highly creative.
Hexagram 01 is the specific form of hexagram 07
The raw context of the situation is described by hexagram 28 - Exceeding. (too much yang). Through refinement we pass through hexagram 34 - inspiring, before reaching this one.
By introducing the characteristics of this hexagram as context, you can change a state described by any other hexagram into a state described by hexagram 43. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 43 as context.
It is important to remember that, when using transformative methods, the more lines requiring change, the more energy required when attempting to introduce a different context. It may therefore be of benefit to work on existing changing lines and achieve your goal in steps rather than attempt, for example, a six-line change all at once.
