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.

Affirm regularly: I remain untouched by gain or loss. In the calm mirror of my understanding I behold Thy light reflected.

Prayer: When I rejoice, Lord, let it be with Thee. And when I grieve, help me always to see Thy sunlight through the mists.
