More right than left
Being led into relationships by urgings of love which arise and are sustained naturally and spontaneously within my heart, is always 'God-righteous' even if I have to transgress the Ten Commandments.

Obviously this confirms the existence of two sets of laws.

One is described as 'the law' (i.e. the Ten Commandments) and the other the law of Christ, (i.e. the Spirit of Jesus).
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
Galatians 5:2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
Galatians 5:3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
Galatians 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Obviously the law here is the Ten Commandments. This says 'one who esteem the Ten Commandments in the smallest way, is under the Ten Commandments and he must uphold all the Ten Commandments to the letter in order to be saved and delivered. And such a person is not like Paul. He is not under the law of Christ. That is such a person is not under Grace and being in Christ is not for him'
This is based on your quote: Paul says that He is not under the Law, but under the law of Christ.
One is the law of Moses and the other the law of Christianity and these are totally different things. One is under the Ten Commandments which killeth and the other is righteousness of God without the law.
Righteousness of God without the law is unconditional obedience to precisely what the Spirit of Jesus has in mind for one to pray for, say and do, as discerned within one's own heart or spirit, even if one has to transgress the Ten Commandments.
When one is led into his works by precisely what the Spirit of Jesus has in mind for one to pray for, say and do, as discerned within one's own heart or spirit, even if one has to transgress the Ten Commandments one is in Christ. This is the 'law of Christ'.
