Meditation and/or Reflection

Are meditation and reflection equally important? Or is reflection just a by-product. Meditation clears the mind and calms the senses enabling a period of clarity, openness, and focus which invites productive reflection. The focus of that reflection can be unpredictable, for me meditation clears out the backlog of thoughts and ideas allowing what’s important to rise to the surface of my awareness. Am I alone in this experience?
