What happens when your talents are not valued by others? The chances are you will stop valuing them yourself and therefore you stop pursuing them. As this is your talent the value in yourself as a person also goes down.
There is no spiritual practice that you need. You want to remove the idea of need altogether. The beauty is that you desire to come closer to Me. The beauty of spiritual practice is your focus. You are the true beauty of it. There is nothing outside of you that you have to have. You do not have to be educated to Me. I Who am of the heart come to you through the heart.
