Mr. Shankman also has a book where that interview comes from called The Experience of Samadhi. He interviews quite a few well-known Buddhists about jhana and what they say is illuminating.
Buddhaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Dhammaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi
Saṅghaṃ saraṇaṃ gacchāmi

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.

Just keep meditating and the answers will come. :) That's all I have to say about this subject, and that's my answer to OP's questions.
