A mystic comes to realise that life is a eternally continuous drama and till the time he gets enlightened he lives life as a normal human being. Trying, mistaking and learning continuously till one gets enlightened.
Sufi’s call their beloved, God is their female lover, become Suhagin on the day of their enlightenment by finding her true Lover, as husband.
That is why Umar Khayyam has written so much about vine because intoxication of the Lover and the vine is very similar. Just that due to vine will end and due to Love of God it never ends.
Enlightenment transforms a person’s vision towards himself, life and towards others . He knows that he is doing his role only during his each and every act. Being an actor in real life and not taking seriously to whatever happens to him. He is not doing any sin, if his act is such, because he knows that this is the demand of the scene only. He also knows that a moment in this eternal drama will come when his role will be over and he has to leave the stage.
Performing to his best till he is part of the drama is such a great reward in itself. So a mystic leaves his body as happily as an actor leaves the stage on completion of his role. With a feeling of contentment that each and every part of the role was done to his best, some went wrong etc but he enjoyed it too by learning.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
Osho International Online (OIO) provides facility to learn these from your home,

3. There is a 7 days Free Trial also for people who would like to first try it out.
This is an opportunity for learning and knowing Osho through these sannyasins who lived in his presence and brought to life his words in best possible quality in all formats.
Disciples of Jesus left him alone in last minutes but Osho’s disciples remained with him till he left his body willingly after working, till last day, for all of us to get enlightened. Jesus tried hard till last minute, before being caught, to teach meditation to his disciples. As per Saint John’s Gospel:- Jesus used word ‘Sit’ to transfer his meditative energy to them and went on to pray God, but on returning he found them sleeping. He tried two times again but in vain.
Even today Zen people use word ‘Sit’ for meditation in their saying ‘Sit silently, do nothing, season comes and the grass grows by itself green’.
