Does it mean u fall in love with god or does it mean u think of god constantly or otherwise?

I don't think so. It's a pretty high avastha.

First, you have to attach to naam, and have naam residing in mind.  See the concept of "charan" thread.

This pure enlightened jot(knowledge/being/awareness) already exist in all of us, according to gurbani. Our mind have to quite/silence to experience it or abide it in and function through until it effort becomes effortless, until realization of that dawns.

ਗਉੜੀ ਮਹਲਾ ੫ ॥ गउड़ी महला ५ ॥ Ga▫oṛī mėhlā 5. Gauree, Fifth Mehl:

ਅਗਮ ਰੂਪ ਕਾ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਥਾਨਾ ॥ अगम रूप का मन महि थाना ॥
Agam rūp kā man mėh thānā.
The Lord of Unfathomable Form has His Place in the mind.
 
 
Ang-603
ਮਨ ਰੇ ਤ੍ਰੈ ਗੁਣ ਛੋਡਿ ਚਉਥੈ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਇ ॥ मन रे त्रै गुण छोडि चउथै चितु लाइ ॥
Man re ṯarai guṇ cẖẖod cẖa▫uthai cẖiṯ lā▫e. O mind, renounce the three qualities, and focus your consciousness on the fourth state.
 
ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਤੇਰੈ ਮਨਿ ਵਸੈ ਭਾਈ ਸਦਾ ਹਰਿ ਕੇ ਗੁਣ ਗਾਇ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ हरि जीउ तेरै मनि वसै भाई सदा हरि के गुण गाइ ॥ रहाउ ॥
Har jī▫o ṯerai man vasai bẖā▫ī saḏā har ke guṇ gā▫e. Rahā▫o.
The Dear Lord abides in the mind, O Siblings of Destiny; ever sing the Glorious Praises of the Lord. ||Pause||

Having God in mind, means, to be focused on Him at all times as much as possible.

One may ask how can that be possible?  Well, we can easily have Him, through His chintan, His simran. By putting into action this jugtee, we stop the mind from wandering out constantly.

The thing is, we have to get filled more with Him, than the worldly maya. And this is only possible, by aiding, by putting within us the most precious wealth/dhan, and that is the one of His Nam simran. There is no other way to lessen maya or koor within us, except the one of His Nam, Wahiguru.

For only His power, can overpower, subdue and defeat man, maya and kal. 

Our reality as spiritual beings/souls, is the nature of us being particles of  the Infinite Ocean of Shabad, and thus, to merge in Him, is our sole goal in human life.

Just as in Anand Sahib, we have heard and read many a times, Nam jiskay man vaseeya, vajeh Shabd ganere.  Which means, in the minds of those where Nam is established firmly, through His Simran, we start being/getting aware of our True nature as His souls, and as the more we dedicate ourselves in the devotion of Nam Simran as pointed out thoroughly SGGS,  we start getting purified from all our impurities, karmas, vasnas, man, moh, vikars, only then we gain that much purity by His Grace at all times, that only and only then we are fit to merge and become one with Him.

That is His Beant wadeeayee, of letting us being engaged in the devotion of His Lotus Feet.

So finally, how did all this happen?

Well it all started, by having him in our mind, through His Simran.

Har simran meh Prabh Aap Nirankara.

Sat Sree Akal.

A verse from Guru Jee, on the topic of the present thread.

 

ਹਰਿ ਜਪਿ ਲਾਹਾ ਅਗਲਾ ਨਿਰਭਉ ਹਰਿ ਮਨ ਮਾਹ ॥੪॥੨੩॥

Har Jap Laahaa Agalaa Nirabho Har Man Maah ||4||23||

Those who chant the Name of the Lord earn great profits; the Fearless Lord abides within their minds. ||4||23||
