There is a reason for abhyasa, practice. The intent of practice in yoga is to make the mind still, so that it is possible to go into the deepest meditative state, Samadhi. Without practice, the mind constantly jumps from thought to thought. But in samadhi, the mind stays perfectly still. When our mind is not still, its energy dissipates.
Here is a story by Swami Rama that explains further.
Long ago, when I was twenty-seven years of age, I opposed my master. After working hard I could not attain Samadhi. I told him, “Please give me samadhi.”
