choosing direction

The whole day has been crammed with strong feelings of depression and self-hatred. I asked for help, opened a wise-word-book(my favorite quotes from the Course) and read:

T-21.III.5. It is impossible that the Son of God lack faith, but he can choose where he would have it be. 2 Faithlessness is not a lack of faith, but faith in nothing. 3 Faith given to illusions does not lack power, for by it does the Son of God believe that he is powerless. 4 Thus is he faithless to himself, but strong in faith in his illusions about himself. 5 For faith, perception and belief you made, as means for losing certainty and finding sin. 6 This mad direction was your choice, and by your faith in what you chose, you made what you desired.

The direction was my choice.

I now turn away and choose the opposite direction: God’s love
