What must we sacrifice to receive faculties, gifts and virtues of the soul?
Answer from the V.M. Samael Aun Weor.
Only by annihilating desire can the mind that is normally bottled up within desire be liberated. The awakening of the Consciousness is produced only by liberating the mind from desire. The Fool of the Tarot is the psychological “I”, “the myself,” the reincorporating ego.
If we want to end the causes of desire, then we need to live in a state of constant vigilance. It is urgent to live in a state of alert perception, alert novelty. The “I” is a great book, a book of many volumes and only by means of the technique of internal Meditation can we study this book.
When we discover and profoundly comprehend a defect in all of the levels of the mind, then it is completely disintegrated. Each time a defect is disintegrated, something new occupies its place: an esoteric password, a mantra, a cosmic initiation, an esoteric degree, a secret power, etc.
Thus, this is how, little by little, we fill ourselves with true wisdom.

Answer from the Magazine "The Wisdom of the Being".
The sexual organs are the legitimate laboratium-oratorium of the Anphitheatrum Sapientiae Aeternae. It is the Sanctum Regnum. (It is legitimate work-oratory of the Amphitheater of Eternal Wisdom. It is the Holy Kingdom)
There is an acrostic that is formed by these letters: “V.I.T.R.I.O.L.” which symbolizes the following: "Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificatur Invenies Ocultum Lapidum" which means: "Visit the interior of the earth, that by rectifying you will find the hidden stone".
This acrostic with its seven letters and its seven words symbolizes the entire Great Work. The mysteries of the numeral seven in Kabbalah are surprisingly divine.
It must be borne in mind that the number seven represents magical power in all its strength. It is the Holy Seven or the Sanctum Regnum of work with creative energy.
As we can see in the illustration there are several elements that indicate what we need to work on the purification of our mercury.
