Training the Mind and Attention

Looking at some verses on citta (mind/heart) from the Dhammapada:

The flickering, fickle mind, difficult to guard, difficult to control,
— the wise man straightens it as a fletcher, an arrow.

The mind consists of an ever-changing stream of thoughts and mind-sets, ever flowing on, never resting. It constantly hums and roars, and is hardly ever silent or still. It is hungry and always on the lookout for 'food', be this in the form of experiences, things to do, or think about.
