Namaste,
Only desire ( I want this and that and you don't get it) your mind gets disturbed-restlessness.  Restlessness is because mind craving for something. This even saints experienced, as their desire was for god.

How to Get Rid of the Restlessness of the Mind?

A question has come up that how to get rid of the restlessness (lack of peace, disturbances, agitation) in the mind?
It is a very easy point.    We know about the restlessness of the mind.  Therefore, the thing that is known, seen by us, is not our Self (swaroop).  If I saw the building,  then, did I become the building?  I saw a stone, then, did I become the stone?   That which is seen is separate, and the seer is separate.  There is no doubt about this.  It is you, who has knowledge and awareness of the restlessness of the mind.  You are the one to see the restlessness.   Is there any doubt about this?  We see the agitation and the agitation is the kind that is seen, then what is the interference?  We saw a stone, now if it gets heated, then what difference does it make to us,  and if it gets cold, then what difference does it make?
This mental resolution that may this restlessness, this agitation go away, is the reason for this agitation.  It is due to this resolve that a relationship continues with the disturbances.   If you resolve that let there be no disturbances in my mind, then be assured that there will most certainly be disturbances.  Therefore server the relationship with the mind.  Really speaking, there is no relationship with the mind.  It is only an assumed relationship.  You have presumed the mind to be yours.  The disturbances come and they go,  resolves come and then they go away, but you remain as-is, In this there is no doubt.   Then whether these go away  or not,  you simply leave them.  Do not blend with them,  do not become pleased or displeased.     Just as when the sun beats down hard, and in the heat, the mind instinctively directs you to move to a shady spot.   But you do not criticize the sunshine or feel pleased with the shade.    We are neither to condemn anyone, nor praise anyone, this is very important for a sadhak (spiritual aspirant).
