When not focusing on anything in particular, the mind skitters around mindlessly among whatever thoughts happen to present themselves.  To think is to direct the mind in a more or less systematic way along a specific sequence of thoughts toward a specific end. To meditate is to open the mind to a single thought until it fills the mind so completely that there is no room left for anything else.
