43 / 62 Breakthrough (Resoluteness)
Seedings, Cuttings, Spread-Out
"KUAI : seperate, fork, cut off, decide; pull or flow in different directions; certain, settled; prompt, decisive, stern."ERANOS p473
"[With perseverence comes intensity : Resoluteness]
By passing out benefits, one can reach below.
By staying aloof one can keep to one's 'way'."
Hexagram 43 is a long way from the use of tradition. We need to see inside ourselves to get through this. This can generate what some see as resoluteness and others see as arrogance. This total self development needs to be balanced by opening up to others. This is accomplished by 'spreading the word', analogous to taking cuttings from a plant to use elsewhere.
Hexagram 43 is the specific form of hexagram 04
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 44 lead astray/seducing/persuading. It passes through hexagram 14 Directing 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 01. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 01 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.
