Cease the mental tension. Train your mind to pass over thoughts. Do not give countenance to them until such time that you can surrender the mind itself.
No one is doing it. When the mind is surrendered, there is no question of happiness and unhappiness.
Because of the thoughts of the past lives, sanskaras are spent away. They come and go. Pay no attention to them.
Mind is like a wound-up alarm clock. It will ring at the appointed time, but only so long as the winding is there. Let it ring and run its course, but take care to not wind it again by indulging in bad actions.
