Meditation vs daydreaming.

If a daydreamer uses positive thoughts in meditation one is trying to stop the brain chatter and become more open to the quiet. In daydreaming one cannot accept their present reality, so they create their own reality. (But what thoughts to use as therapy to change a negative thought to positive)? Could that be another way of meditating? Paul

If the object is to not think, but just be, then daydreaming is the opposite of the goal.

How about daydream as a therapy using positive thoughts instead of negative thoughts? With rational reasoning as a goal? Paul

Different things. Different purposes.

Pjames, what you describe sounds more along the lines of affirmations. Nothing wrong with that. I am no expert, but I have heard some good things about that.

Meditation is more like a setting cloudy glass of water down, and leaving it alone. After a while, the sediment settles and the water becomes clear, so you can see.

Decius,
I would think the positive thoughts of the mind calmed the body not vice versa. The body can calm itself without the brain/mind action? pljames
