Even-Mindednes

Many people confuse progress with movement and with outward change. Thus, the more dust of excitement they can stir up, the more productive they feel they are! The more they get swept up into a happy mood when things go well, the better, they imagine, things have gone. And their answer to every slump is to cast about for some other thing to sweep them high once more. Such lives are like cars driven over deeply rutted roads: Their movement is almost as much up and down as it is forward.

With even-mindedness, progress is a straight, not a jagged, line. Progress, however, should mean above all progressive understanding. Even-mindedness bestows clarity of perception, which is the ability to see things as they really are, undistorted by emotional bias.
