"[With self-reflection comes overcoming(Control) : Standardizing]
One uses analysis to create standards and the right
words in following one's path."
In hexagram 60, self imposed limits are useful for development. they enable one to set reachable goals and to stretch the limits as well as set up standards by which one can compare progress. This form of discipline helps avoid possible obstruction and oppression. These limits are set from within (56,60) not from without (38,39). In the image, just as measurement standards are a form of limitation but beneficial, so is determining a 'best course' as one develops one's path.
These standardization processes imply the concept of staying and reasoning things out; to seperate and distinguish.
The raw context from which the situation derives is described by hexagram 59 Dispersing/Clear Away/Dispel. It passes through hexagram 41 Concentrating 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 61. To make a state associated with another hexagram transform into this state, introduce hexagram 61 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.
