19 / 48 Approach
"LIN : approach, behold with care, look down on sympathetically, condescend; bless or curse by coming nearer; a superior visiting an inferior."ERANOS p260
"[With self-reflection comes trust] : [Deference]
Above a marsh there is earth : Approach.
To reflect, one uses teaching exhaustively.
To protect the common people, one uses unbounded tolerance."
In hexagram 19 we find a time of deference for the high(top trigram) and a time of easy approach for the low(bottom trigram); not a time for the high to stand one's ground even if appearing 'balanced' . The 'high' is generous and aids and teaches the low.
(There is a very obvious difference in lines 1-3 and lines 4-6 when we read the traditional line comments (see below). Lines 1-3 are bias to those approaching, whereas lines 4-6 are bias to those deferring. The traditional name of the hexagram is bias to the lower trigram.).
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 04 Masking/enveloping. It passes through hexagram 61 Yielding 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 41. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 41 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.
