Nondirective meditation and the default mode network

Nondirective meditation, such as Acem meditation, integrates the spontaneous stream of thought as an important part of the practice. Where in the brain do these thoughts come from, and why is the brain built to generate them? How does non-directive meditation harness and enhance the beneficial effects of mind wandering?
