Living awake is not a matter of a simple or complex life, private or famous, It's simply a matter of "ordinary". You may do "big things", like Osho, Gandhi and Buddha, or you may be totally anonymous like, well, like those who are anonymous :-)
You can do the same things you've done before, you just can't "be" them. There are no more guidelines. You can not "belong" to, or follow, a group or an idea. You can only flow. It is not a matter of "fun" or "light" or "bliss", but of following your own life intent.
No one else can guide you to your own intent without seeing you personally. There is no generic "right way to live awake". Generic is asleep.
