"CHIN : grow and flourish, as young plants in the sun; increase, progress, permeate, impregnate; attached to. The ideogram: sun and reach, the daylight world."ERANOS p397
"[With devotion comes direction].
Light over the Earth. [Attraction].
One uses natural guidance [devotion to] to brighten one's 'Way' (tao)."
In hexagram 35 we find that when one's presence is not yet influencial, one must still persevere. This is done through 'purification' of the self, hopeful for the moment of recognition (8). This progress is noticeable (51) and highly attracting (45). Both in benefit and adversity - (read the line comments.)
(All four hexagrams (14,35,8,5) deal with issues of potential and actual leadership. And correlate with the generic base trigram feature of seeking balance).
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 51 enlightening/arousing. It passes through hexagram 45 Gathering/Massing 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 16. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 16 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.
