Laws were created to protect us from the hardness of our hearts. You need laws only if you insist on keeping your heart hard. Bring the wine of the Kingdom into yourself and it will soften your heart. Then you shall have no use for laws (or limitations of any kind).
What will laws do for a man of heart—keep him from admiring the garden?
Consider that your addictions are intensified by your limitations—your restrictions upon yourself. For whenever you restrict, you restrict love.
Remove your restrictions; and, when you find yourself embraced by the freedom and the love that follow, you will have no need for your addictions any longer.
And when you are without addiction, you will hurt no one. For addiction is the product of a hard heart.
When she turns you away, turn to face the light. She only desires to redirect you there.
