In contemplating the way of Baba Hari Dass I began to picture all the extraneous thoughts in life as that friend who comes over to constantly raid your pantry and your refrigerator. As long as there is food to be had - as long as the mind runs wild, he keeps coming round. As the mind get quieter there's less for the thoughts to snack on. Maybe I just like the image of thoughts being a perpetually hungry friend...

Kaayedriya siddhir ashuddhi ksayaat tapasah (Yoga Sutra II.42)
By austerity, impurities of body and senses are destroyed and the yogi is made perfect.
