Chapter 475: Chaotic Deity Heart
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
Time kept flowing, year after year. In the blink of an eye, 3,300 years had already passed since Xue Ying entered the Bloodshed God Emperor’s tutelage.
In the range of mountain behind the Crimson Stone Courtyard…
Jing Qiu, Dragon Mountain Emperor, and Scarlet Flame Monarch were walking along the mountains, carefully looking at everything around them and listening to any sound.
“Over there!” Jing Qiu vaguely detected a sound.
Sou sou sou.
The three rapidly flew over. Before long, they were able to see Xue Ying in his simple black robes, brandishing a spear. He was stabbing the tree in front of him without stop. These trees…had been produced and nurtured within the unique environment of Bloodshed God Palace and were all extraordinary breeds. Even when Xue Ying put all of his energy into chopping them, he would still need half an hour to finish any of them. Now that he was using a spear to jab at it, the tree remained upright even after a whole day.
Dong! Dong! Dong!
The spear thrusted out time after time, each strike accompanied by great power.
“Don’t disturb him,” Monarch Scarlet Flame said solemnly to the others. “It’s already been ten years since Dong Bo entered these mountains to train his spear techniques. He’ll likely come out with some accomplishments.”
Jing Qiu kept watching him from a distance as she revealed a smile. “Ever since he first entered the mountains to train ten years ago, I’ve not dared transmit him any message from fear that it might disrupt his concentration and cultivation heart realm. His true body has also entered closed-doors cultivation…I was starting to think some accident might have occured. Now that I know he is here, I can rest easy.”
“You say that, but why exactly is he just staying there, thrusting his spear at that tree time after time?” the Dragon Mountain Emperor muttered. “What use will any of that be?”
“Naturally, it’s not anything you can comprehend. If you could understand it, you would not be stuck at middle stage of the Deity realm,” the Scarlet Flame Monarch teased him.
The Dragon Mountain Emperor didn’t even know how to respond.
Xue Ying was feeling truly comfortable as he displayed his spear technique time after time. He was being quite reserved in terms of his power, through every one of his strikes hit right against against the tree’s branches without exception. Once one of the trees fell down, he would just move on to another. His only focus at the moment was the feeling of his cultivation heart realm transforming before his eyes. He felt himself getting close to his desires, so he wanted to grasp hold of this opportunity and keep going.
For so many years, he had just been comprehending the great amount of guidance provided by the Bloodshed God Emperor regarding the Chaotic Deity Heart, experiencing it time after time. Combined with his training in the Sealed World Pagoda over that whole time, he was getting close and closer to breaking through that bottleneck.
From the moment he first went through forced labor, he started to love using these trees to polish his spear techniques. It relaxed his mind, and he found that he was inspired more frequently in this state.
And this training session was precisely the same!
As he kept pondering the Sealed World Pagoda secret technique while attacking the tree time and time again, Xue Ying suddenly had a revelation, and he immediately entered a mysterious state of mind. His inner heart was also enjoying this feeling, in which he completely immersed himself.
Right now, he found that displaying his spear technique was also a form of enjoyment to him! Every single attack he launched left him feeling delighted, and whenever he found something that was not quite right, he would simply adjust it.
Xue Ying once again struck his spear out. Even though he restrained the strength internally, whenever he lashed at a completely undamaged tree, it would release an explosive and terrifying booming power! The towering tree would explode into pieces and turn into countless splinters. This scene was sufficient to startle Jing Qiu and the others, all of them having watched him for six to seven years already.
Awesome! Xue Ying’s eyes brightened. A spirited feeling filled his body as he let out all of his stifling feelings in one go!
This is awesome, so awesome! I don’t have to care about anything! I can just be free, and let out everything I have! Xue Ying’s eyes were glittering. The Laws of Profound Mysteries began descending upon the surrounding space. The different grade one Deity Hearts are, indeed, all focused on different directions. Ever since I was young, I would cultivate my spear techniques in search of balanced perfection, which is why grasping the World Deity Heart was so simple for me to do! However, that same state of mind turned out to be the biggest obstacle toward comprehending the Chaotic Deity Heart.
The space surrounding Xue Ying began crumbling apart as dark holes began forming all around him.
Once the dark holes arrived upon Xue Ying’s body, all of that space in his vicinity, which was crumbling apart, was swallowed by these dark chaotic holes. The weeds around him, the tree splinters, all of them were being swallowed whole.
“Chaotic Deity Heart?”
“Dong Bo has broken through?”
Jing Qiu, the Dragon Mountain Emperor, and the Scarlet Flame Monarch who were watching him all entered a state of elation.
Xue Ying himself was also soaking in the joyous feeling, the sort of feeling which one would die for at night after feeling it during the day! He truly was in a grand mood after comprehending the Deity Heart. The others could speak as much as they wanted, but they could only say their own opinions! Even the pointers he received from the Bloodshed God Emperor, despite being very detailed, proved ultimately useless! It was similar to how the Bloodshed God Emperor could put in all his effort for the sake of his wife, but she still couldn’t become more than a stage one World Deity due to her weak heart realm.
On the road of cultivation, people could receive pointers from others, but they would still have to ultimately walk the road themselves. It all came down to one’s own comprehension.
Xue Ying had succeeded, and it was only natural for him to be excited and happy. He also finally understood what kept him stuck at this bottleneck and how taxing it was. Even so, he finally broke through on that day.
The various grade one Deity Hearts definitely head in different directions.
The World Deity Heart uses the elements of earth, fire, water, and wind as a base. Together with the aura of life, they can reach an equilibrium. It is balanced and all-encompassing, like the rivers which flow into the sea!
But the Chaotic Deity Heart is entirely different! It walks down a path to an absolute extreme!
Xue Ying shook his head.
Even with his teacher’s guidance, he still had to understand this problem by himself. After all, this mindset focused on encompassion and equilibrium was one that Xue Ying gained when he was still young! As he trained his spear techniques, his offense and defense were both aspects which he had to polish in search for the perfect balance. Even the way he treated others, despite him being an introvert, would still be quite polite on the surface.
This was all part of his mindset centered on equilibrium, and it was a balance that had seeped down to his bones.
It wasn’t the sort of thing he could change as soon as he understood the problem. While comprehending that secret technique, especially as he jabbed at the tree using his spear, his mind would empty. He would throw away all external influences, which served to break the shackles of his mentality. His mind and soul were both cleared to an empty state, like a clean sheet of paper. It was this training which allowed him to gradually start breaking through the bottleneck of that secret technique gleaned from the 351st level world from the Sealed World Pagoda and eventually comprehend it in its entirety.
It’s no wonder that the World Deity Heart is much weaker than the Chaotic Deity Heart in close combat. Xue Ying revealed a grin. The Chaotic Deity Heart originates from the most basic instinctual self. It’s about throwing everything aside and just completely destroying all before oneself.
They might all be completely different directions, but after reaching grade one, all of the Deity Hearts would still be somewhat similar in the end! It was part of the reason why fusing grade one Deity Hearts together was comparatively less difficult. They were all different parts of the most basic essence of the Laws of the World.
The World Deity Heart might be balanced and encompassing, but it’s precisely because it is so encompassing that it can also take in this most intrinsic destruction. The two grade one Deity Hearts within Xue Ying were rapidly fusing together. It was an extremely fast process, without any sign of confusion. In just a few breaths of time the two grade one Deity Hearts were already underway in the process of fusing as one.
Xue Ying’s aura began transforming at the same time, and it was now starting to show signs of a deeper level of the Laws of Profound Mysteries.
“Dong Bo has broken through.”
Jing Qiu, the Dragon Mountain Emperor, and Scarlet Flame Monarch were all looking from a distance. They could see that Xue Ying was in the process of breaking through and did not dare disturb him until he finished.
Within the hidden underground palace of the Bloodshed God Palace, there was an enormous furnace, scarlet-red in color, within which a blazing flame was burning. The huge figure of Bloodshed God Emperor could be seen sitting cross-legged right outside this furnace, focused on observing everything that was happening within the furnace. He was pondering on the mysteries within it without pause.
“Master,” a mighty voice resounded throughout the entire palace hall.
“Mn?” The Bloodshed God Emperor frowned. “What is the matter?”
This mighty voice belonged to none other than the treasure spirit of the palace itself. The Bloodshed God Palace, in spite of its incredible size, was indeed a treasure, complete with a treasure spirit which could discover everything that happened within its premises. Whenever someone was to pay him a visit, or if any disciples or subordinates were to enter the forbidden grounds, he would receive word of it through this treasure spirit! It was only this treasure spirit which was sure to be eternally loyal to him.
However, he had long since ordered it to not disturb him unless an important matter came up.
“Master take a look at that inner disciple, Dong Bo Xue Ying, of yours,” the voice resounded.
The Bloodshed God Emperor was rather puzzled, but he had great trust in the treasure spirit. With a thought, his spiritual awareness covered the entire Bloodshed God Palace, and he naturally discovered Xue Ying in the process as well.
He broke through? The Bloodshed God Emperor calmly assessed the situation. So what if he did, tough? For someone to become a stage one World Deity within five thousand years was nothing strange.
However, his initial reaction was followed by a frown of disbelief. Stage two?
