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.

Whole cosmos is throbbing within every mystic. He does not belong to a place on the Earth but the Earth belongs within every mystic. So how can a mystic leave a body? when the body is throbbing due to supply of energy from him. A mystic is infinite and body is finite. So only this is possible that the mystic stops supplying energy or will to live further to his own body. The body after death is like a dry grass leaf floating on wast ocean. The mystic is still throbbing and lively only the body is allowed to be left to decay on its own.
Awareness meditation (Osho guiding about meditation on YouTube) is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. You may wish to know that the state of meditation is our natural state and “How meditation affects us?”.
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.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step in deciding to add value to life. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation (My experiences shared through a post) helped miraculously. Along with meditation living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful. It is helful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
