And if he didn't, was it because the state of 
enlightenment makes everything seem easy and simple
*when it really isn't*?  Is it possible that the
"easy and simple" sense applies on some level other
than the practical one of achieving a goal, but
that the person who is enlightened may incorrectly
think it applies to achieving the goal?

The easy and simple sense applies only to the awake one. What ever
comes or goes is in the relative. What ever they attempt is easy and
simple as it just flows. How it unfolds is not revelant. One is only
in control of ones action never the fruit. One is never a failure
since one attempted to do what the next obvious thing to do seemed
apparent. Once the thought appears in the awareness the awake one has
the entire range of the act in the relative world available in their
awareness at the exact instance of the thought. That is why it appears
that an awake one has no desires. The full appreceation of the thought
includes the fulfilment of the completion. In other words full
knowledge of the act in the relative and the full appreciation of the
outcome. Kind of neat actually. Desires are now seen as appreciation.
No conflict, no unfulfilled desires, no problem. See the thought, do
what is obvious, move on to the next obvious thing to do. TOm T
