07 / 16 The Army
"SHIH : troops; an organized unit, a metropolis; leader, general, model, master; organize, make functional; take as a model, imitate. The ideogram: heap and whole, organize confusion into functional units." ERANOS p151
"[With containment comes trust]: The Army.
One allows the common people to form a large group."
Hexagram 07 is the formalized manifestation of like-mindedness. The like mindedness is imposed by the structure and is therefore sociological rather than psychological (as in 13); the only way is the Army's way through the concentration of forces and the dispelling illusions/clearing things away)
Hexagram 07 is the general form of hexagram 01
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 41 Concentrating (literally & metaphorically). It then passes through hexagram 59 Dispelling/Dispersing before reaching here.
By introducing this hexagram as context, you can change a state described by any other hexagram into a state described by hexagram 04. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 04 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.
