Suppose the evil thoughts stay in your mind for twelve hours and recur every third day. If you can make them stay for ten hours and recur once in a week by daily practice of concentration and meditation, that is a decided improvement. If you continue your practice, the period of stay and recurrences will be gradually lessened.
Eventually they will disappear altogether. Compare your present state of mind with that of last year or year before last. You will be able to find out your progress.
The progress will be very slow in the beginning. It will be difficult for you to gauge your growth and progress.
