Oh so you can get into that state with meditation? Never knew that, I always got into that state accidentaly with WILDS or by taking strange drugs within dreams.

Thanks so much!
What exactly are you trying to do when you meditate?
There are two kinds of meditations: Active and Passive.
You're probably trying a passive meditation, whereby you focus upon one thing in an effort to clear your mind of all surface thoughts?
Try an active meditation instead. With an active meditation you focus upon creating a scene and running through that scene in as much vividness and realism as you can muster.
Both have the same end goals... but approach that goal differently.
If you're still bored after that, then you're seriously not "getting" what meditation is about.
If I had the time, I could sit meditating for hours... there's a special feeling about being alone with your consciousness.
