PMG Chapter 688: The Palace of the Emperors
“Remember what I told you, in order to break through to the Tian Qi layer you need to understand the human earth fusion and you cannot let anything pollute your heart. You will need to remain pure and remain determined. If you let pollution into your heart you will always remain at the top of the Xuan Qi layer and will never break through to the Tian Qi layer.” said the Zun cultivator. They would of course, remember those precious pieces of advice.
“You have to work very hard to become stronger. Natural abilities are very important, just like willpower and determination. You also need a great spirit, for it can determine your destiny when you’ve broken through to the Tian Qi layer.” said the Zun cultivator. As before, his words were like drums beating in people’s hearts.
The spirit would play a great role once they would have broken through to the Tian Qi layer…
“For many people, the spirit is something they acquire at birth. It is something fixed and rigid that follows you everywhere and every time while remaining in perfect harmony with your body. Your spirit is a part of your soul. Before the Tian Qi layer you can understand intent, intent correlates with your spirit just like Duan Wu Dao’s sealed doors, Di Ling’s firmament intent… After the Tian Qi layer your cultivation level will become even higher and you will be able to fuse together with the earth, it will increase the harmony existing between your spirit and your body. You will often sense that your spirit and intent are interconnected, as if they were blending. Many people find that that it is closely interrelated with the spirit when they themselves understand what intent is.”
“Therefore, a cultivator of the Tian Qi layer who hasn’t understood intent is worthless.” said the Zun cultivator slowly. Many people looked at Lin Feng, he hadn’t broken through to the Tian Qi layer but he already had a level five sword intent. He had terrifying natural abilities and had won the Great Competition of Xue Yu. Such geniuses were extremely rare.
“Lin Feng, show them your sword intent and how incredible it is.” said the Zun cultivator, smiling at Lin Feng.
Lin Feng simply smiled politely and said, “Alright.”
Lin Feng turned around and faced a tree. Then he released a terrifying sword intent that made it seem like there were millions of swords in the atmosphere and all of them were filled with a terrifying Qi. It seemed like he was about to cut through the world.
After that, many small subtle sounds could be heard. People discovered that on the tree there were thousands and thousands of cuts. They had all been caused Lin Feng’s energies and intent, he hadn’t moved but with his sword intent he was able to kill people and annihilate things from thousands of meters away. Besides, Lin Feng had only broken through to the Xuan Qi layer, if he broke through to the Tian Qi layer his sword intent would become much stronger. It would be terrifying…
“Not bad.” said the Zun cultivator smiling. “That is sword intent. Now I will show you what the abstruse significance is.”
“Abstruse significance!” The crowd was absolutely astonished. They were going to have the opportunity to sense some abstruse significance! They were fixated on the old man.
“What I study is wind abstruse significance and it transforms wind. You cannot see it so look carefully.” said the old man. He then stood up and another Zun cultivator appeared, it looked like a shadow.
Immediately after, some wind started blowing everywhere around the area. Suddenly silhouettes of the old man were appearing. They all stopped in front of the crowd and surrounded them. They were moving around just like the wind.
They stretched their hands but couldn’t touch them, it as if there had been nobody there at all. Or they possessed no physical body at least.
However, another kind of wind started blowing. The crowd was shaking when they sensed that there were people next to them but they were intangible. Then when the believed that they couldn’t touch them, the crowd was suddenly able to.
“Are they real?” The crowd was astonished.
“Abstruse significance… That is abstruse significance.” The crowd was astonished, their hearts were pounding. What they had just seen was only the tip of the iceberg… but they were already amazed.
In the past, they had thought that they were extremely strong, but now they were discovering that the world of cultivation was extremely vast. They had the feeling that they were insignificant cultivators. In front of really strong cultivators, they were simply novices… They understood nothing. Besides, in the eyes of the old man they really were just beginners about to enter a new world.
“Breaking through to the Tian Qi layer will give you incredible powers… Your soul will become stronger and you will be able to use it more efficiently. Your spirit will become real and will deploy a monstrous amount of strength.” continued the old man, making the crowd feel even more excited. Cultivators of the Xuan Qi layer couldn’t compete with cultivator of the Tian Qi layer. It was a world of difference.
“I’ve heard that on the path of cultivation there are shortcuts. Apart from hard work, perseverance and determination there are other ways to become stronger?” asked someone. Everybody paid attention this question, they understood what it meant. That person was asking if joining Shen Gong would give them special advantages. Was Shen Gong able to make their cultivation speed increase and become stronger than other people?
The Zun cultivator understood what that person meant. He smiled and said, “Of course, no matter what your cultivation level is there are ways. You just need to find the resources suitable for your cultivation. Improving cultivation of the Tian Qi layer necessitates intent crystals that fit their unique cultivation. With those crystals, Tian Qi cultivate can understand how to improve their intent. Of course, you need to find the crystal which fits your cultivation. For example, if you study sword intent, you will need to find some sword intent crystals. And it’s like this for all sorts of cultivation. Using unrelated crystals can help but it is not as efficient.”
“Those intent crystals must be extremely expensive and precious.” someone said…
“Of course, Shen Gong with its power doesn’t have many. Only the most determined cultivators should use intent crystals anyways. Of course, in the Palace of the Emperors there must be a myriad of intent crystals, and even abstruse significance crystals…” said the Zun cultivator smiling. People’s hearts were pounding.
The world of the Palace of the Emperors was probably the world Bei Ming had told them about.
The Absolute Emperor was stronger than Zun cultivators. He was a master of all cultivators…
In the Palace of the Emperors, there were intent and abstruse significance crystals…
Bei Ming already told you that you will find incredible things if you enter the World of the Emperors….” said the Zun cultivator.
“Mister, I have one question. How do abstruse significance crystals appear?” asked Lin Feng.
“Intent crystals are extremely precious, especially Tian level ones. The others, such as sword intent crystals are less precious. In the past, extremely strong cultivators could probably build abstruse significance crystals by confining themselves in some rooms and studying.”
“Understood.” said Lin Feng nodding.
The crowd looked pensive as if they had suddenly understood something.
“Do you have any other questions?” asked the old man. Everybody remained silent as they had no more questions.
“Since you have no more questions, let’s stop for today. Please leave now.” said the old man indifferently. He looked majestic and domineering. People gradually bowed in front of him one after the other and then left.
