39 / 10 Obstruction
"CHIEN : Walk lamely, proceed haltingly; weak-legged, afflicted, crooked; feeble, weak; unfortunate, difficult. The ideogram: foot and cold, impeded circulation in the feet."ERANOS p435
"[With self-restraint comes overcoming(Control) : Bypassing]
One uses inner flexibility to help cultivate one's 'way'."
In hexagram 39 one is blocked in one's path, but this blockage is from within. It is therefore best to try and find an alternative route - bypass to overcome rather than conflict. This may require changing one's self temporarily. Contextually, we combine rigid structure and selectivity into a situation of dealing with obstructions.
Hexagram 39 is the specific form of hexagram 21
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 37 Rigid Structuring. It passes through hexagram 52 Selectivity 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 53. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 53 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.
