Not freedom from desire, but freedom of desire. ... For centuries, people have distorted its meaning, mistakenly assuming that detachment devalues desire and denies the potential goodness of the things and people to which one can become attached. ... An authentic spiritual understanding of detachment devalues neither desire nor the objects of desire. Instead, it "aims at correcting one's own anxious grasping in order to free oneself for committed relationship to God. " According to Meister Eckhart, detachment "enkindles the heart, awakens the spirit, stimulates our longings, and shows us where God is ... " 

Grace is our only hope for dealing with addiction, the only power that can truly vanquish its destructiveness. Grace is the invincible advocate of freedom and the absolute expression of perfect love. 

... our incompleteness is the empty side of our longing for God and for love. It is what draws us toward God and one another.

From a more specifically spiritual viewpoint, we naturally seek the least threatening ways of trying to satisfy our longing for God, ways that protect our sense of personal power and require the least sacrifice. Even when we know that our hunger is for God alone, we will still be looking for loopholes - ... ways of maintaining our attachments to things and people while simultaneously trying to deepen our intimacy with God. We seek compromise ... because of the way that we are made; we naturally look for the least painful ways of living. 

The structures of religion are meant to mediate God's self-revelation through community; they are not meant to be substitute gods.
