Inverential Peace, brothers.
My question goes as follows:

I was wondering if a repenting fornicator could start working on the death of the ego right away...?

You see, I was thinking that a fornicator, having a degenerated mind, heart, and sex, would have to wait as he undergoes sexual regeneration through either sublimation or transmutation. It makes sense, since, not only would it be even harder to comprehend the I's, but I think that the Divine Mother would not have enough sexual energy to fortify the lance of Eros with which She eliminates the I's. Also, I'm not sure if such a person would even have the necessary amount of merit to deserve spiritual development, as he would have to work very hard in Third Factor for it, especially if he continued his fornications even after receiving the Arcanum and and pledging chastity.

So, back to my question: how much transmutation or sublimation must be done, and how much merit must be acquired before a fornicator can begin to work seriously with the death of his defects? Can he begin right after deciding on chastity, or must he wait a certain amount of time (as he regenerates) to begin dying?

Any person who renounces fornication may initiate spiritual discipline. As for becoming regenerated through Buddhist annihilation within a short amount of time, that depends upon the will of God, and the comprehension and sexual strength of the individual. Remember that when Samson in the book of Judges gave away his secret (of chastity) and was blinded by the Philistines, he regained his strength enough to conquer his enemies while enslaved. What helped him was intuition; he knew he was still a servant of God, albeit fallen, and was guided to wage war against his internal psychic afflictions (the ego represented by the Philistines) when inspired to do so. That comes gradually, and will be different for each person who enters the path after having indulged in fornication.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

So, as I understand, it all depends on the Law and on the will of the Father, mainly, as well as other physio-psychological factors.
Yes, I suspected as much.
Thank you for your knowledge, brother Benedictus!
