Q: How does one control the wavering thoughts while doing meditation?

A: With practice.

The natural tendency of the mind is to wander and the process of meditation or spiritual exercises will help to discipline the mind and keep it directed the way you want it to go. If you are a beginner to meditation or spiritual exercises, it's a good idea not to try to "keep the mind quiet." The mind can continue to chatter but you just place it off to the side and continue to meditate. Don't be real concerned at first if your thoughts are all over the place. As you practice and continue to discipline yourself, you will experience the results. It can take time, so be patient with yourself.
