Bhagavad Gita on What One Thinks

And he who at the time of death, meditating on Me alone, goes forth, leaving the body, attains My Being: there is no doubt about this. Gita Chapter VIII verse 5Remembering whatever object, at the end, he leaves the body, that alone is reached by him, O son of Kunti, (because) of his constant thought of that object. Gita Chapter VIII verse 6
Therefore, at all times, constantly remember Me, and fight. With mind and intellect absorbed in Me, thou shalt doubtless come to Me. Gita Chapter VIII verse 7
With the mind not moving towards anything else, made steadfast by the method of habitual meditation, and dwelling on the Supreme, Resplendent Purusa, O son of Pritha, one goes to Him. Gita Chapter VIII verse 8
