Instead of filling your mind with thoughts and then organising fights between them, pay no attention to the mind at all. How does it originate? People funal want to kill or control the mind have the same problem: You can go to the top of Arunachala, but if you are not alert, if you are not paying attention, you may slip and end up at Easanya Math [a Hindu institution at the base of the hill].
