In hexagram 17 we find that the spirit of the young can help regenerate the spirit of the old. Degeneration does not have to be absolutely final; it can be suspended or replaced by a new belief.
Hexagram 17 is the general form of hexagram 52
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 12 Neutralizing/firming. It passes through hexagram 21 Biting Through/Problem Solving 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 25. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 25 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.
