The Spiritual Attainment of Minghe Chapter 351-360

Chapter 351: The Arrival of 'God of Plague'

But actually, they did not have any choice. Even the Taoist Jun Tian and the other eight experts of Origin could not practice the Air of Chaos unless they possessed Magic Weapons just like the Cauldron of Heaven and Earth, which could turn the Air of Chaos into the Primordial Spiritual Air. Otherwise, they could hardly survive in the Chaos leaving the World of Five Elements.

Every Cultivator needed Spiritual Air for cultivation. The Air of Chaos was a special Spiritual Air, and only the Rakshasa could use it. Once the Taoist Jun Tian and other people left the World of Five Elements, they would lose alimentative Spiritual Air. They would die if they could not find a place to supplement supernatural power before running out of it.

It was really dangerous to traverse the Chaos. But the supernatural power of the Realm of Origin was so strong that they would never would not run out of it, even in hundreds of thousands of years if they did not engage in frequent battles. However, it was only the best situation. In the Chaos, there was lots of danger. At any moment, the Omnious Beast of the Chaos, a chaotic storm, and even the crack of the space might occur. Once they met them, their supernatural powers would be lost, and the end of their powers would come.

Abandon the World of Five Elements? It was obvious that the Taoist Jun Tian and others would never do it unless there were no other choices. How could they abandon the place where they were born and raised? The beast tide of the Chaos this time was really scary, but they still had hope. They might still win when the Way of Heaven controlled the partial power of these Omnious Beasts, especially those at the Origin.

"Hoo...Hoo..." A burst of the roaring voices of beasts echoed in the Chaos. When they all showed up, all Cultivators of  the World of Five Elements were terrified. With a closer look, there were more than 20,000 Omnious Beasts, 23 at the Origin, six at the Middle Stage, one at the Late Stage, and the rest were all at the Early Stage of Origin. It was really a strong lineup.

With the roaring of the Rare Beast of Chaos, a killing air formed in the Chaos near the World of Five Elements. When it reached a certain extent, all Ominous Beasts took actions as the howl of the leading one at the Late Stage of Origin, which was a earthshaking powerful army heading to the World of Five Elements. Facing Ominous Beasts, the Taoist Jun Tian and others did not confront them head-on. They would definitely die if they had had direct confrontation with those beasts. The Taoist Jun Tian said calmly, "Retreat!" In the World of Five Elements, the Taoist Jun Tian had authority. In this critical moment of the World of Five Elements, it was natural that someone stood out as the leader.

Hearing that, everyone was confused, but they still followed his order and began to withdraw. As for the seven people of the Taoist Yan Xuan who were also at the Realm of Origin, they had naturally known what the Taoist Jun Tian's plan was and would never reject it. They withdrew, together with Taoist Jun Tian, up to the border between the World of Five Elements and the Chaos. At that time, the Taoist Jun Tian issued another order, "Stop!"

Everyone stopped with sombre looks on their faces, since they had witnessed the coming beast tide of the Chaos. At this moment, a mighty force came between the Heaven and  the Earth. In fact, to be precise, there were five. Here came the Way of Heaven of the World of Five Regions. Many weird powers began to criss-cross in the border, like a weird special tactical formation. When Ominous Beasts were about to rush to this weird area, something magical took place. All beasts slowed down, as if they were stuck in the mud. Seeing it, the eight persons of the Taoist Jun Tian were very happy. They knew that it was the Way of Heaven, which could strongly restrain the power of Ominous Beasts of the Chaos.

It was the right time to fight. The Taoist Jun Tian said immediately, "All people less than the Origin, listen to me: the Way of Heaven has already taken action to heavily restrain the power of these beasts. You should cooperate with each other to kill Ominous Beasts at your level. We, the Origin, will handle with those at the Realm of Origin."

The arrangement of the Taoist Jun Tian was quite reasonable. As the saying goes, soldiers fight with soldiers while generals fight with generals. Even though Ominous Beasts at the Early Stage had been weakened by the Way of Heaven, they were still at the Realm of Origin with the human body of the Origin, which the Sage-to-be could not handle. But in this way, the five Taoists at the Early Stage of the Origin alone could be against many in the World of Five Elements.

Hearing it, all Cultivators of the World of Five Elements took action together. Facing so many Ominous Beasts, the most effective way was to join forces with each other. They had never encountered this size of beast tide. But in the past, there had been some Ominous Beasts attacking the World of Five Elements. Despite fear, they had tacit understanding and would not be in a mess.

The Taoist Jun Tian could not stand by since all Cultivators had taken actions. The Ominous Beast of the Chaos less than the Origin was easier to defeat. But no one knew what damage beasts at the Realm of Origin would cause after they entered the World of Five Elements. So they could only stand out to stop those beasts at the Origin.

There were the full 23 Ominous Beasts at the Origin. The eight of the Taoist Jun Tian could only work in cooperation with a due division of labour. The five Taoists at the Early Stage of the Origin took charge of the 16 Early-Stage beasts who had been partially weakened by the Way of Heaven. These five Taoists could fight against them with the help of the Primordial Five Elements Formation. Even they could not defeat those beasts, they could still stall for time.

The Taoist Jun Tian was going to fight the Ominous Beast at the Late Stage of Origin. Now this beast had been weakened and just been at the Middle Stage. The Taoist Jun Tian was enough to battle with him with the Magic Weapon. As for the Taoist Tong Hua and the Taoist Xun Yuan, they combated six beasts at the Middle Stage of Origin. A stunning war began to break out.

It looked like both sides were well-matched in strength. The side of the World of Five Elements had the help of the Way of Heaven while the Ominous Beast of the Chaos was superior in numbers. In this moment, the key was which side would gain a little advantage first, and then turn the  advantage  into  a priority.

When they were engaged in the fierce battle, a person suddenly appeared in the empty World of Five Elements. Looking at the strong Power of Five Elements and Spiritual Roots of Five Elements everywhere in the World of Five Elements, he praised, "No wonder it's the World of Five Elements. It doesn't enjoy undeserved fame. All powers of the World of Five Regions meet here, forming this special place: it's definitely a paradise for people who cultivate the Tao of Five Elements!"

This person was Minghe. He turned around and looked at the Chaos border of the World of Geng Metal in the World of Five Elements. He naturally knew about the shaking battle there. To be precise, this battle was his creation. Before he backed to the Out-of-Law Area, what he wanted was not merely taking back the beast nest found before. Leading a group of Ominous Beasts to attack the World of Five Elements had also been one of his purposes.

There was all medium dichiliocosm in the World of Five Elements. Among them, the Way of Heaven was relatively powerful. Not to mention that the World of Five Regions had already formed a natural Primordial Five Elements Formation. With the mingled Way of Heaven, its power had boomed. Just now, the Way of Heaven had together suppressed Ominous Beasts, and Minghe could reckon the power of the Way of Heaven in general.

The "Fate" in "The Half Fate" referred to the Fate Golden Immortal of the Origin, which was also the strength Realm of the Way of Heaven in Untainted Land and the Realm when Hongjun had combined Tao. Though there was also the Way of Heaven in the World of Five Elements, it was incomparable with that of Untainted Land, and each region might only have the power at the Late Stage. But when they banded together, they would possess the power of the Half Fate.

Reckoning the general power of the Way of Heaven in the World of Five Elements, Minghe was much at ease. He could still handle the Half Fate. But he had to come up with other plans if the Way of Heaven together could surpass the extreme of the Da Luo Golden Immortal of Origin. What's more, it had taken him a lot of effort to invite so many "helpers".

The combination of the Way of Heaven was powerful and even Minghe could not defeat it. But since it had diverted its attention to weaken Ominous Beasts, it could not display fully. Facing the incomplete Ways of Heaven of Five Regions, Minghe was confident. Otherwise, he would never rashly intrude into the World of Five Elements.

Not long after Minghe's arrival, changes had taken place in the World of Five Elements. Five giant eyes suddenly appeared in the World of Five Elements. Those were eyes of the Way of Heaven. They had felt the intruder Minghe, and been here without prior consultation for frightening him.

The endless prestige of H eaven was like devil hell. However, such coercion had not worked on Minghe. Though it was also called the Way of Heaven, it was far cry from that in Untainted Land. Minghe had never feared it in Untainted Land, not to mention in the World of Five Regions. It would never be so easy to beat him into a retreat in the face of such coercion.

Chapter 352: Sacrificing the Five Elements

Sensing a powerful threat from Minghe, the Way of Heaven of the World of Five Regions fell down the World of Five Elements. Now part of the power of the Way of Heaven tried to help cultivators of Taoist Jun Tian to resist the chaotic Ominous Beast, while the remaining part posed no vital threat to Minghe. Therefore, Minghe would naturally not miss this great opportunity.

Minghe didn't feel uncomfortable at all when the five eyes of the Way of Heaven looked at him. but said with a smile, "Well, well, well, since you are here, let's start." Three flashes of shadows, which were his Three Separations, came out of him. Looking at the five eyes, Minghe said, "Go ahead! This time, we either live or die."

Minghe, Red Lotus Taoist, and Musen stood side by side, activating their supernatural powers together, which immediately shook the whole World of Five Elements. They were forming the Taoist Seals in their hands continually, covering the whole world. It seemed that they were preparing for something big. Heaven and Earth Taoist stood at the center of the tree. He did nothing, but seemed to be waiting for the right moment. Although the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions didn't know what the four of Minghe was doing, they could feel a great threat from them. They started their attacks together. The powerful Way of Heaven fell down from Heaven and ran towards the four. Right at the moment, most of the powers of the World of Five Regions were activated to kill the four.

Minghe, Red Lotus Taoist, and Musen did not care about the phenomenal power, but focused on what they were preparing for. They had no time to resist the power of the Way of Heaven. If they were hit by the power, they might get badly hurt. If that happened, what their previous preparations would have been in vain.

Although the three did nothing to resist, Heaven and Earth Taoist had to do something. The power of the Way of Heaven was tough and powerful. However, Heaven and Earth Taoist had a World of Heaven and Earth inside his body. Talking about the power of the Way of Heaven, the World of Heaven and Earth could not match with the resultant force of the World of Five Elements and the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions. However, the World of Five Elements could only activate part of its power of Way of Heaven.

When Heaven and Earth Taoist waved his sleeve, a wheel appeared in his hand. It was the Way of Heaven's Wheel of Law of the World of Heaven and Earth, which was refined before by him and was called Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth. Heaven and Earth Taoist threw it into the sky and activated it with his power to resist the attack from the Way of Heaven.

Even though the World of Five Regions could not channel the whole power of the Way of Heaven, the force could not be ignored when it joined hands with the Way of Heaven of the World of Five Regions. It was naturally difficult for Heaven and Earth Taoist to resist the attack alone. Therefore, he had to alter the power of the Way of Heaven in his own World of Heaven and Earth, activating the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth to resist the attack.

It was a close fight between two kinds of power of the Way of Heaven. The World of Five Regions belonged to medium dichiliocosms, while the World of Heaven and Earth was a medium dichiliocosm. It seemed that the latter one was less abundant than the former one, but their powers of the Way of Heaven were both at the level of medium dichiliocosm. Therefore, it was difficult for a victor to emerge.

However, every world's power of the Way of Heaven was limited, so the abundance of power would be the vital element towards winning. Time would tell who would be the winner. Actually, Heaven and Earth Taoist was not at an advantage.

Seeing Heaven and Earth Taoist struggling to resist the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions, Minghe, Red Lotus Taoist, and Musen all sped up. For just a short while, everything was settled. Minghe formed a Taoist Seal in his hand and shouted, "Block the Heaven and Earth!" At his words, the whole World of Five Elements became static. From the outside, it seemed to totally disappear.

The five eyes of the Way of Heaven did not change at all when the three of Minghe completed their arrangement. These non- emotional eyes might have moved a little. Since the whole World of Five Elements had been blocked by the three's Power of Infinity and lost contact with the outside world, it was no wonder that the eyes could not feel the existence of the World of Five Regions for a short time.

If the five had feelings, they might have panicked about getting into Minghe's trap. The Way of Heaven had displayed all of its power, so if it could not beat Minghe immediately, it would have no choice but to die. Though the three had completed the sealing of Heaven and Earth, they still had to continuously amass enough supreme original power to support it. If the Way of Heaven of the World of Five Regions broke this seal, Minghe's plan would be in vain. Then, they would have to escape, crestfallen.

Heaven and Earth Taoist naturally knew of the urgency of the situation, so he did not wait and formed a Taoist Seal in his hand, shooting into the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth. He murmured, "Supreme Yin and Yang combine with  Five Elements of Heaven and Earth. My Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth sacrifices the Five Elements."

The Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth was activated by Heaven and Earth Taoist, exposing endless Green Light, which was the power of Heaven and Earth. When this power covered the whole World of Five Elements, the world started changing such that endless Power of Five Elements and World flowed towards the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth. Heaven and Earth Taoist even dared to use his wheel to refine the whole World of Five Elements. If he completed the sacrificial exercise, the whole world would lose most of its power. By then, Minghe would be able to control it completely.

The Ways of Heaven of Five Regions also knew Heaven and Earth Taoist's action, but the sacrifice had already started. If they used their power of the Way of Heaven to suppress the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, they would consume a lot of power. By then, they might be broken by Heaven and Earth Taoist's attack and end up just like World of Five Elements.

Though the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions had no feelings, they knew what was best for them. Facing this urgent situation, the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions took action immediately, with five strengthful streams of power shooting out of the Eyes of the Way of Heaven, directly falling on the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth. This action was really tough. While Heaven and Earth Taoist planned to sacrifice the World of Five Elements by his Wheel, the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions responded in an opposite way that combined the power of the World of Five Elements with them to sacrifice the Tao Wheel Heaven and Earth.

When the wheel was totally refined by the Ways of Heaven of Five Regions, Heaven and Earth Taoist would lose in this battle. Without the wheel, he would get badly hurt. After all, this wheel was a supreme treasure in the World of Heaven and Earth, which was connected with the Way of Heaven of the World of Heaven and Earth. If this treasure was lost, the Way of Heaven of this world would be hurt terribly. By then, Heaven and Earth Taoist would not have a positive outcome. However, if Heaven and Earth Taoist could finish refining the World of Five Elements, the result would be opposite. By then, the Way of Heaven of World of Five Regions would be weakened, and Heaven and Earth Taoist could activate his World of Heaven and Earth to swallow it when time permitted. Even with the remaining part of the power of the Way of Heaven, nothing could stop Minghe from doing what he wanted to do.

This was a war of attrition where every minute counted. When facing this urgent situation, Minghe was in no hurry. Looking at the colorful light shining on the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, which was formed when the Way of Heaven of the World of Five Regions and Heaven and Earth Taoist contended to seize control of the wheel, Minghe showed an evil smile on his face.

......

In the Chaos out of the World of Geng Metal, Cultivators of World of Five Elements fought fiercely against the chaotic beast tide. Both of them lost a lot. Although the numerous chaotic Ominous Beasts had strong bodies, the Cultivators of World of Five Elements could fight against them with their precise tactical formations, the Ways of Tao, and Magic Weapons. For a while, the result was too close to call.

While Taoist Jun Tian was resisting the attack of a chaotic Ominous Beast at the level of Late Stage of Origin, he had to put up with a plan to win this battle. Though it was difficult to tell who would win, they would lose the upper hand if they made even the tinest mistake. Or else, it would be a disaster to the World of Five Elements. By then, World of Five Elements might cease to exist.

What worried Taoist Jun Tian even more was that he somehow felt a sense of crisis. It seemed that something dangerous was about to happen. He had never felt this way even when facing the chaotic beast tide. Although the beast tide was tough to deal with, they also had a chance to win with the help of the Way of Heaven of the World of Five Regions. However, this kind of sense of crisis made him feel deeply uneasy.

Now, Taoist Jun Tian could only choose to finish this battle as soon as possible, because he knew the longer this battle dragged on, the more unfavorable it would be for them and the World of Five Elements. Apart from the beast tide, Taoist Jun Tian was more worried about Minghe, who he met at the Out-of-Law Area. If Minghe came to him at this moment, they would not be able to fight back at all. Thinking of Minghe, Taoist Jun Tian felt more uneasy. Looking at the fierce chaotic beast tide, he generated an idea that this beast tide might have been led here by Minghe. Thinking of this, Taoist Jun Tian was shocked. If everything was like what he thought, Minghe must be nearby.

If Minghe took the opportunity to attack them, they would be unable to resist. Thinking of this, Taoist Jun Tian felt a little panicky, which caused him to reveal their flaws. Though they high wisdom, these chaotic Ominous Beasts would not miss this chance. One of them hit Taoist Jun Tian with its head, while the latter one had to resist this attack immediately. Nevertheless, he was knocked out and got badly hurt.

Chapter 353: Jun Tian's Apprehension

"Ahem...". Taoist Jun Tian let out a grunt and wiped a bloodstain from the corner of his mouth. Then he waved a long sword again in his hands to confront the Chaos Omnious Beast which was about to kill him. However, he was at a disadvantage in the fight all the time because of his defensive position and not his severe injury.

Nevertheless, others were very anxious to see the scene. Taoist Yan Xuan also felt immensely worried to see that Taoist Jun Tian had been on the defensive. Since Taoist Jun Tian was injured originally, his injury was made more ven severe from the attack of the Chaos Omnious Beast. Given that Taoist Jun Tian was defeated, the side of Taoist Yan Xuan would be in rout. At thought of it, Taoist Yan Xuan said anxiously, "Taoist Jun Tian, how about your injury?"

Taoist Jun Tian reply, "It doesn't matter. You needn't worry about me because the beast can do nothing to me." Hearing this his response, the others felt slightly more at ease, but they still worried that he could not be on the defensive for too long. After all, the beast he fought against was a Chaos Omnious Beast at Late Stage of Origin. Even though part of its strength was suppressed, the beast could not be underestimated. Out of anxiety, others could only actively take the offensive, hoping to find the breakthrough point in the fight. Taoist Jun Tian certainly noticed. In fact, he took the defensive on his own initiative, and not because of suppression from the beast. He was distracted just now, so the Chaos Omnious Beasts gained the upper hand. However, there was no flaw in his defense for the time being, leaving the Chaos Omnious Beasts with no opportunity for a while.

Taoist Jun Tian began to think of countermeasures as well when defending attacks from the Chaos Omnious Beast. Assuming that the fact was just what he guessed, the Chaos Omnious Beast would not be the most dangerous one. Therefore, it would be of no avail even if they had killed all the Chaos Omnious Beasts involved in the invasion. He was certainly clear that the third party would benefit from the tussle.

But Taoist Jun Tian felt confused about Minghe's purpose if all of these were plotted by Minghe. To kill him, Taoist Tong Hua and Taoist Yan Xuan could not be the purpose. Although they fought Minghe in the Out-of-Law Area, Minghe did not have any losses. Would he take pains to plot all of these?

If not, what was Minghe's purpose? Taoist Jun Tian racked his brains but could not get answers. was there something Minghe needed in World of Five Elements, but could not obtain it by himself? So, he plotted all of these to divert part of the Way of Heaven? Taoist Jun Tian did guess it right. Lamentably, he did not know that what Minghe wanted to get was the World of Five Elements.

So, he had to take action immediately. Although he did not know what Minghe really wanted, Taoist Jun Tian was extremely anxious. No matter what happened, he could not allow Minghe to succeed. However, they were delayed by the Chaos Omnious Beasts and could not extricate themselves. Perhaps Minghe had sneaked into World of Five Elements.

The only way Taoist Jun Tian had thought out was to quickly defeat the Chaos Omnious Beast. Nevertheless, with their present strength, the would not be able to kill all the beasts. What they could rely on was the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions. If the power of the Way of Heaven suppressing the Chaos Omnious Beasts was stronger, they could manage it.

The Way of Heaven was the way out. At this thought, Taoist Jun Tian instantly delivered his Spiritual Thoughts to contact the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions to get its help. However, when he contacted it, there was no response from World of Five Regions at all. More accurately, his Spiritual Thoughts did not contact it at all. Had the Way of Heaven disappeared?

Taoist Jun Tian turned ghastly grave. Between Heaven and Earth in World of Five Regions, the power of the Way of Heaven nearly could not be felt by him except the strong power of the Way of Heaven in the Chaos where they were fighting. Hence, he was somewhat frightened to see such anomalies – that there was not much power of the Way of Heaven in World of Five Regions at all.

When his Spiritual Thoughts went elsewhere, his expression was awfully bad with his eyes being somewhat inert, almost causing his defense to be breached by the Chaos Omnious Beasts. Fortunately, Taoist Jun Tian, at the Realm of Origin with strong Spiritual Thoughts, came back to his mind with his expression unchanged.

How could it be possible that World of Five Elements had disappeared? Taoist Jun Tian's eyes were full of disbelief. However, it was the fact that not only World of Five Elements disappeared, but that the Way of Heaven was also nowhere to be found, not allowing any of his oppugn. What the hell was going on? Questions appeared in his mind one after another without any clues.

Suddenly, Taoist Jun Tian was enlightened, as if he had guessed the key point. Was he? He appeared, the one they met in the Out-of-Law Area. His name was unknown but his strength was indeed terribly strong. What Taoist Jun Tian felt confused about was why that person who used to make World of Five Elements and Ways of Heaven of Five Regions had disappeared.

Taoist Jun Tian could only use his Spiritual Thoughts to carefully search every corner of World of Five Regions for suspects, finally finding some clues in the original World of Five Elements. Although World of Five Elements seemed to have disappeared, there were bits of Power of Five Elements drifting in the Chaos with the reasons unknown, as if they bad been leaked from somewhere.

Taoist Jun Tian realised that World of Five Elements did not disappear at all but was banned by someone using Power of Infinity, so did the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions. Perhaps the Way of Heaven found invaders, so it befell World of Five Elements. However, in the end, someone used some ways to hinder contacts between World of Five Elements and World of Five Regions. Taoist Jun Tian basically guessed most of the situation in jiffy. With the powerful Origin, little clues could lead to deeper investigation and get most of the situation. Even if the situation was guessed right but the Chaos Omnious Beasts could not be killed, it would be useless, let alone destroying Minghe's plots. What happened in World of Five Elements was unknown, but it was evident that something bad had taken place.

Minghe's strength was terribly powerful, beyond Taoist Jun Tian's imagination. He could sneak into World of Five Regions without being noticed and put the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions imprisoned in World of Five Elements. In this case, Minghe drove the Chaos beast tide to attack World of Five Elements, forcing Ways of Heaven of Five Regions to disperse the power of the Way of Heaven, and then he sneaked into World of Five Elements. Was there anything Minghe needed in World of Five Elements?

World of Five Elements was nothing but the product created by Primordial Five Elements Formation in World of Five Regions. Afterwards, World of Five Elements boasted rich Power of Five Elements through incessant efforts from people at the Origin. Even if World of Five Elements was destroyed, it could be recreated in the last resort. As long as World of Five Regions was not ruined, the gathered Power of Five Elements would be continuously replenished. The destruction of World of Five Elements was a bigger loss at the worst, which was acceptable to them. What Taoist Jun Tian was worried about was the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions. If there was something wrong with it, which was imprisoned in World of Five Elements, the problem would be very serious. Once the Way of Heaven was damaged, it certainly would have impact on World of Five Regions. No one could expect what bad results would be caused.

The only thought Taoist Jun Tian had was that there should not be any problem in the Way of Heaven, which was so strong that Minghe could not intrude into it recklessly. Hence, the plot was designed. Once the power of Way of Heaven could not deter Minghe, he would intrude into World of Five Elements mercilessly. By that time, Taoist Jun Tian would not have any confidence to hold off Minghe even with the eight Origins present. What World of Five Elements would be was perhaps determined by Minghe at whim.

Taoist Jun Tian was anxious when thinking about it. He instantly waved his long sword to turn the tables on the attackers, carrying out the most violent attack towards the Chaos Omnious Beast. Others were a little startled to see it. Taoist Jun Tian, who was at a disadvantage originally, suddenly played his trump card and should have suppressed the Chaos Omnious Beast for a while. What on earth had changed Taoist Jun Tian so much?

Taoist Jun Tian certainly felt everyone's confusion, but there was no time for explanations. So, he anxiously said, "Everybody, please end the fight quickly. The Chaos beast tide was designed by someone, perhaps the one we met in the Chaos den. At the moment, he may have infiltrated the World of Five Elements."

Everyone was surprised but Taoist Jun Tian did not pay attention to it and continued to say, "I just found out that World of Five Elements had already been banned by someone with Magic Skills, so did the Way of Heaven in World of Five Regions. I'm afraid that this someone may have some astounding plots. Everyone, don't hold back, but just quickly kill all the Chaos Omnious Beasts and then go to World of Five Elements with me to find out what happened."

When he finished speaking, he waved his sleeves. A golden light flew out from his sleeves and immediately shot towards the Chaos Omnious Beast. The light, which turned out to be a Golden Fly Cutter, a Mid-Grade Primordial Spiritual Treasure, struck its head. It was so painful that the beast howled ceaselessly, with a murderous look in his eyes. However, Taoist Jun Tian obviously would not leave any opportunity for it to survive, saying coldly, "Make it explode!" Boom! That Golden Fly Cutter broke at once, exploding half of the head of the beast. A long sword had already been thrust into the other half of its head before it could respond.

After the Omnious Beast died, Taoist Jun Tian felt relieved for a while. But he was somewhat reluctant to give up his flying dagger, which was one of the few primordial spiritual treasures. There was no time to care about it, so he collected the corpse of the Omnious Beast and continued to fight other Omnious Beasts from the Chaos at the Origin.

Chapter 354: Banned the Five Elements

At the expense of self-exploding Magic Weapon Taoist, Jun Tian killed that Omnious Beast from the Chaos at Late Stage of Origin, causing changes of the stalemate in the battle. Side of World of Five Elements tended to win the battle. With participation of Taoist Jun Tian, it would be easier to kill other Omnious Beasts from the Chaos at Late Stage of Origin. After several days, all the Omnious Beasts from the Chaos were killed.

Despite the victory, World of Five Elements paid great price for it, with many Cultivators below the Origin injured. But the good news was that there were no serious injuries in eight Origins, just some slight injuries at most. Though Omnious Beasts from the Chaos had been killed, they knew that the real battle had just begun and the rivalry was a giant they did not understand.

With the crisis of the Chaos beast tide solved, the power of the Way of Heaven in the battle changed at once. Taoist Jun Tian could clearly feel the fluctuation of the power of the Way of Heaven, which just liked a sharp aword shooting towards World of Five Elements. Seeing it, everyone knew that something wrong had happened, and sensed immiment trouble. Seeing it, Taoist Jun Tian and seven others did not care about their injuries and not had a rest but directly rushed to World of Five Elements. As for people below the Origin, they did not follow because they would be killed easily in the battle between the Origins. In this case, they would rather not be involved in it. Whether Minghe would be stopped depended on the strength of the eight Origins and Ways of Heaven of Five Regions.

When they came to the outside of World of Five Elements, eight of them stopped because there was no way to go inside. The original space of World of Five Elements had been completely banned, leaving no opportunity for them to break in. The power of the Way of Heaven, arriving here earlier, was also rejected outside and was using powerful forces to bombard this tactical formation, attempting to break it.

Unfortunately, even though the power of the Way of Heaven was strong, it had been greatly weakened after the battle of Omnious Beast from the Chaos. With the remaining power, it was impossible for the power of the Way of Heaven to break this tactical formation. However, because of the attack of the power of the Way of Heaven, there was a great fluctuation in the tactical formation, which showed that it was not unbreakable.

This was exactly what eight of them wanted to see. Taoist Jun Tian said anxiously, "All Fellow Taoists, the enemy is inside, and the Way of Heaven was trapped there as well. Although we don't know what the enemy wants, it is certainly not a good thing. Now that this area has been banned by the Power of Infinity, it cannot be broken simply by the power of the Way of Heaven, but also requires our help to bombard the place together with the Way of Heaven. I don't believe that tactical formation cannot be broken."

Others nodded after hearing it. At the moment, the situation had reached a critical juncture. Even the Way of Heaven had been trapped, from which we could see that the enemy's plans were not small. Only by breaking this tactical formation could they have chance to destroy the plots. Without the help of the Way of Heaven, they would obviously not win the battle by their own strength to deal with the powerful enemy.

With a new round of attacks from the Way of Heaven, eight of them also joined forces to cooperate with the power of the Way of Heaven to launch an attack on a place. In the Chaos, a little wave seemed to be stirred in the water surface, which demonstrated that the tactical formation had been shaken. Eight of them were so delighted at seeing it that their attacks became stronger. ...

In World of Five Elements, Minghe, Red Lotus Taoist and Musen, maintaining this tactical formation, could naturally feel the external attacks. Banning the Heaven and Earth, an extremely difficult thing, had greatly depleted their supernatural powers. The force of the Way of Heaven and the eight Origins attacked the tactical formation together, naturally bringing great pressure to three of them.

Looking at the ever-increasing fluctuations in the tactical formation, Minghe turned a hint of grave. Before his plot was successful, he must not allow the outside world to join forces with the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions in World of Five Elements, otherwise, the plot would be destroyed. By that time, World of Five Elements could only be acquired by hard tactics.

However, looking at the dazzling Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth on the top of Heaven and Earth Taoist, Minghe smiled. The Way of Heaven was the Tao of God after all. Although it had a powerful force, it could not flexibly change its strategies. Despite the situation being somewhat stale, most of Minghe's plans had been successful with a little time required for the rest. In the middle of the three of Minghe, the Heaven and Earth Taoist sat cross-legged on top of the cloud deck which was full of supernatural powers, with both hands lifted above his head to send himself supernatural powers and the force of the Way of Heaven. At the moment, the Way of Heaven in the World of Heaven and Heaven and Earth Taoist were completely united, making his vital force vague and illusory, which was similar to the gestures of the time when Hongjun combined his body with Tao. The difference was that the Way of Heaven in the World of Heaven and Earth was far less powerful than that in Untainted Land.

At the same time, the Power of Divine Law and Power of Five Elements in World of Five Elements continued to be injected into Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, which was exactly the effect of Heaven and Earth Taoist life-giving sacrificing World of Five Elements. Seeking the power of World of Five Elements to enhance the power of Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth so that the strength of Ways of Heaven of Five RegionsTwould be weakened. Once the sacrifice was completed, World of Five Elements would surely be destroyed while Ways of Heaven of Five Regions would suffer certain trauma. All of these were Minghe's part of plan.

The Way of Heaven obviously would not make Minghe's plan succeed. In order to aquire Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, five eyes of the Way of Heaven were continuously injected into Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth through the force of the Way of Heaven. Once Heaven and Earth Taoist lost the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, he would be greatly injured. By that time, not only Minghe's plan would fail, but Ways of Heaven of Five Regions would become even stronger because of getting the force of the Way of Heaven from the World of Heaven and Earth in Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth.

After a long time, Heaven and Earth Taoist suddenly opened his eyes and looked up at Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth with a beaming face. The speed at which the force of the Way of Heaven was transmitted suddenly accelerated. In a blink, besides the multicolored light on the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, the blue light suddenly bursted into full bloom, even making the multicolored light overshadowed.

With the sudden eruption of Heaven and Earth Taoist, Ways of Heaven of Five Regions naturally did not show any weakness. Five strong forces of the Way of Heaven suddenly rushed into Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, attempting to suppress Heaven and Earth Taoist without letup. However, Heaven and Earth Taoist did not worry about it at all when noticing it, but displayed an inexplicable joy. With the increasing strength of the force of the Way of Heaven, the Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth changed as well. With Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth vibrated slightly for a while, a strong Power of Divine Law suddenly broke out. At the same time, Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth had been advanced with the appearance of it subtly changed, becoming more eloquent. At this moment,Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth had become a primordial supreme treasure.

Seeing the changes in Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, Minghe and his Three Separations smiled. The sacrifice of World of Five Elements was just a strategy. The real purpose of Minghe was merely to speed the completion of the quenching of Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth by the use of the force of the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions. Not only Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth had been successfully advanced, but also the force of the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions was greatly weakened, which could be described as killing two birds with one stone.

When the great achievements had been made, Minghe would not hold his hands, saying with a hint of happiness, "Attack!" Minghe, Red Lotus Taoist and Musen suddenly withdrew their hands at the same time and did not maintain the tactical formation any longer. Instead, they all launched attacks towards Ways of Heaven of Five Regions. On one hand, there was part of the force of the Way of Heaven outside Ways of Heaven of Five Regions; on the other hand, many forces of the Way of Heaven had been consumed because of the acquisition of Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth. Therefore, it was high time for action to be taken.

Heaven and Earth Taoist also began to take action like Minghe did. With the Taoist Seal in his hands changed, he violently shouted, "Heaven and Earth is infinite and all things are in return. Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth are swallowing the Heaven and the Earth!" When Taoist Seal from Heaven and Earth Taoist was put into Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth began to change immediately, frantically devouring the Power of Divine Law in World of Five Elements as well as the power of the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions.

Before Ways of Heaven of Five Regions had any response, Minghe, Red Lotus Taoist and Musen killed them by surprise and actually wanted to suppress Ways of Heaven of Five Regions directly with Power of Infinity. Meanwhile, Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, motivated by Heaven and  Earth  Taoist, began to frantically engulf the power of Ways of Heaven of Five Regions, which was weakened in no more than one second. At the same time, a loud noise between Heaven and Earth, like a thunderous riot, could be heard. The tactical formation was broken. Eight of Taoist Jun Tian and the remaining power of the Way of Heaven reached World of Five Elements, but World of Five Elements was in ruins and was likely to perish at any time. What made them even more frightened was that the Way of Heaven from World of Five Regions was being refined in the center of World of Five Elements.

Minghe naturally knew that the tactical formation had been broken. Looking at the arrival of the Taoist Jun Tian and other Origins, he smiled and said, "Oh, unfortunately, you are late." Minghe and his Three Separations suddenly made a joint effort to directly drive five eyes of the Way of Heaven into Tao Wheel of Heaven and Earth, and then directly sealed them up for later refinement.

The vast number of the Way of Heaven in World of Five Regions was sealed by Minghe, causing tremendous changes in World of Five Elements at once. The Power of Divine Law in World of Five Regions became disorganized and followed its own path, as if Heaven and Earth had lost kings. Everything was in disorder, and even the power of the Way of Heaven seemed to have signs of breaking up between Heaven and Earth. Taoist Jun Tian looked at Minghe and his Three Separations, asking with a ghastly expression, "Who are you? Why do you want to take over the Way of Heaven of our world? The beast tide was designed by you, right? What do you want?" After asking several questions, he asked what he thought. Since the Way of Heaven was sealed, they had no chance of success.

Although there were only four people on the side of Minghe, their cultivation was far more powerful than the eight of Taoist Jun Tian, not to mention that almost eight of them were injured. Although Taoist Jun Tian was backed by many people, there was almost no chance to win. They naturally understood the current situation that they were already at a disadvantage and there was no room for rebellion. Only by understanding the purpose of Minghe could they can find specific ways and a glimmer of hope.

Chapter 355: The Destruction of the Five Elements

Unfortunately, they could not afford what Minghe really wanted. Since everything had settled down, Minghe was willing to spare some time to tell them the truth. Minghe smiled slightly and said, "Jun Tian, you really have a lot of questions. But I am happy today, so I can tell you who I am. I am Ancestor Minghe."

Then, Minghe pointed at Heaven and Earth Taoist and the other two, saying, "They are my Three Separations. Sorry, I just forgot you didn't hear about the Way of the Three Separations in this place. You can consider them my Incarnations." The Way of the Three Separations was created by Hongjun, so it did not exist in any other world aside from Untainted Land.

Hearing Minghe's words, Taoist Jun Tian and his seven fellows were totally stunned. They had learned about the Way of Incarnation, but they had not expected Minghe to reach such an amazing level. They thought that it was impossible for Minghe's Three Separations to all reach the level of the Origin, each of whom was much more powerful than any one of them. They could not imagine what kind of level Minghe had reached, since his Separations were all that powerful. Looking at the shocked expression on their faces, Minghe continued, "My purpose? It's simple. I need this World of Five Regions, so if I seal the Way of Heaven, I can get what I want easier. As for the beast tide of the Chaos, that's my work. Without it, I can't seal the Way of Heaven so smoothly."

Taoist Jun Tian's face changed color after hearing Minghe's words. As expected, Minghe came for the World of Five Elements. What a nuisance! Since the Way of Heaven had been sealed by Minghe, they had only a small chance to win even if they were to amass the remaining power of the Way of Heaven.

Judging by the power that burst out when the four of Minghe had sealed the Way of Heaven, Taoist Jun Tian was naturally able to understand the disparity between those four and them. But now, he realized that the reason that they were originally able to escape from the beast nest was not because Minghe did not have enough time to deal with them, but that he did not care about them.

When the five escaped, Minghe only sealed Taoist Yan Yang and Taoist Xun Yuan, who had gotten badly hurt. With those two as hostages, Minghe could find the World of Five Elements again. By then, the other three could not escape again unless they abandoned the World of Five Elements and wandered in the Chaos. If they had a good chance, they could find another world to survive; if not, they would vanish into the void after consuming all of their supernatural powers.

Facing Minghe's powerful force, Taoist Jun Tian clearly knew that they could not stop him, so he had to compromise. He said, "My fellow Taoist, Minghe, we know that we are no match for you. Since you've settled on this World of Five Elements, you are the master of this world from this day on. We will go back to the World of Five Regions. What do you think of that?"

Hearing Taoist Jun Tian's words, the other seven showed unwillingness on their faces, but they knew Taoist Jun Tian's intention. Minghe's might was beyond their imagination and the Way of Heaven had been sealed. Since they had lost their strongest shield, they had to stoop down and compromise temporarily.

Though most of the Way of Heaven had been sealed, part of it still existed. Over time, the remaining part could help the World of Five Elements grow. When it had enough power and could match with Minghe, they would take the World of Five Elements back. Though it might take a very long time, they still had the hope to win if they were alive. Unfortunately, they had misunderstood Minghe's words. Hearing Taoist Jun Tian's words, Minghe laughed and said, "The master of this world? No, no, no, you must misunderstand my words. My Good Separation, Heaven and Earth Taoist, is practicing the Way of World Evolution, and he has a World of Heaven and Earth inside his body. Therefore, this World of Five Elements will be swallowed by him to enhance his World of Heaven and Earth."

The faces of Taoist Jun Tian and his seven fellows changed color after hearing Minghe's words. Swallow the world? That was the real purpose of Minghe. Since it was so, they could not deal with this issue in a peaceful way. Taoist Tong Hua's expression turned cold and he said, "Minghe, if the World of Five Elements were to be swallowed, the creatures inside it would die out. By then, you will owe quite a lot of Karma, and this psychological barrier will follow you forever."

Minghe said lightly, "It's none of your business. My Evil Separation, Red Lotus Taoist, has been practicing the Way of Karma and Killing, so Karma is a supreme tonic for him. Besides, after the World of Heaven and Earth swallows the World of Five Elements, most of the creatures will incarnate into the World of Heaven and Earth. In their newborn lives, they might reach higher realms someday." Taoist Jun Tian and his seven fellows looked sullen after hearing Minghe's words. The only thing they wished was that they could persuade Minghe not to swallow the World of Five Elements. But now, that seemed to be impossible and they had to do or die. As for abandoning the World of Five Elements and wandering in the Chaos, they had never thought about that.

The supernatural power of cultivators of the Origin was really abundant. Even without Spiritual Air to support their power, they could live in the Chaos for a long time. But once that was exhausted, they could only wait to die. Actually, if they could find another world, they still had a chance to survive.

Of course, that was the best situation for them. Even if they found another world, it might be difficult for them to survive. It was just like the time that Minghe came into this World of Five Elements. They would be the invaders and would be allowed by the Way of Heaven in the new world. But at the same time, the powerful cultivators in that world would be afraid of them and could even become their enemies.

In fact, every Origin of the experts of the Origin was really attractive to the others. It was a Supreme Treasure to be refined for consumption or to refine weapons and elixirs. Perhaps they would become the prey of other cultivators. Unless they were lucky enough to find a world as weak as the Treasures World or Beasts World, they had just a small chance to survive.

With that being the case, it might be better for them to fight. In fact, they did still have some chance to win. With the power of the remaining part of the Way of Heaven and the Primordial Five Elements Formation formed by the World of Five Regions, the eight experts of the Origin could still activate extremely formidable power. Though the World of Five Elements would surely be badly damaged after this battle, it would be better than if it was completely swallowed.

After making the final decision, Taoist Jun Tian activated his Spiritual Thoughts to make contact with the remaining part of the Way of Heaven and he shared all of his ideas with it. Though the Way of Heaven had no ideology, it knew the stakes. It was the time to live or die, so it would fight with the eight. Even if it would pay a lot, it would be better for the World of Five Elements to be swallowed.

When the power of the Way of Heaven changed, Minghe naturally discovered the change of the World of Five Elements. In order to suppress Minghe and enhance the power of Taoist Jun Tian and his seven fellows, the Way of Heaven activated the power of the World of Five Elements to form the super Primordial Five Elements Formation.

Unfortunately, Minghe would not allow them to achieve their goal. Stepping forward, Minghe shouted, "Real Body of Rakshasa, be revealed!" As his words finished, Minghe's body expanded. In a mere moment, Minghe turned into an 800,000- foot-tall giant. His horrible vital force of Rakshasa suddenly made the World of Five Elements vibrate tremendously.

It was the first time for Minghe to completely reveal his Real Body of Rakshasa. Last time, when he swallowed the vital force of destruction in Untainted Land, he only revealed a body that was tens of thousands of feet high. Minghe had a  vigorous power of the Origin, which Liu Er could not match  with. Though the latter also achieved his Real Body of Rakshasa, his Origin was much weaker than Minghe's, so he could only produce a body that was tens of thousands of feet tall.

The Real Body of Rakshasa stood in front of Taoist Jun Tian and his seven fellows. The horrible Vital Force of Destruction made them shudder and they even wanted to escape from there. However, facing Minghe's might, they did not dare to escape and could not even if they wanted to. Minghe looked down upon the eight and looked around the World of Five Regions surrounding him, saying lightly, "It's time to end it." Then, Minghe shook his fist, vibrating the entire Chaos and World of Five Elements. Even space was shaking. This fist had the power to destroy Heaven and Earth, representing termination and death.

Suddenly, the Five Elements were destroyed, the Chaos was broken, the remaining Way of Heaven collapsed, and even the World of Five Elements deviated from its original location, while the Primordial Five Elements Formation formed by the World of Five Elements was broken. Taoist Jun Tian, Taoist Tong Hua, and Taoist Xun Yuan were all badly hurt, while the other five experts of the Origin had exploded into ashes. That was the end of it.


At the other end of the Chaos and outside a medium dichiliocosm, Hongjun was hiding in the Chaos, observing what happened in this world. With the Supreme Treasure, Zixiao Palace, in his hand, he wore a delightful smile as he soliloquized, "Finally, I found it." His voice was full of coldness and even the vital force of destruction, which could make people shudder. Looking at this world, Hongjun seemed to have found a precious treasure. Although the Tao that he cultivated was different from Minghe's, this world also had great use for him. Swallowing this world could improve the cultivation of Minghe's Good Separation, while Hongjun had the same purpose. In fact, each way of the 3,000 Great Ways would lead to the same destination.


Hundreds of years later, Minghe was sitting cross-legged in the Chaos, scattering an extremely horrible vital force and stirring the Chaos surrounding him. A faint trace of the vital force of destruction was floating over the Chaos, which was the remaining vital force of the destruction of the World of Five Elements. This Chaos was the original location of the World of Five Elements. Unfortunately, that world had disappeared, and only the vital force of destruction floating over the Air of Chaos proved that it had even existed before.

Chapter 356: The Flourishing Untainted Land

After some time, the Chaos was restored to calm again. Minghe's horrific vital force was also restrained. After opening his eyes, Minghe felt the power surging inside him and his Three Separations. He could not help smiling because his hard work had paid off.

Most importantly, Heaven and Earth Taoist had swallowed the World of Five Elements in one fell swoop. The World of Heaven and Earth developed rapidly once again. With the integration of the Origin of the World of Five Elements, the World of Heaven and Earth did not become unstable due to its rapid development. That was what Minghe wanted. He would prefer for the World of Heaven and Earth to remain stable, rather than it having hidden dangers caused by rapid development.

The key to the growth of a world was its foundation. Now, the World of Heaven and Earth had swallowed the Origin of the World of Five Regions all at once, so it naturally developed at an amazing speed. Heaven and Earth Taoist deliberately slowed down its development. For the development of the world, everything needed to be improved. It could take a long time to assimilate all the gains this time. It also satisfied Minghe's mind. During this period, Minghe's strength developed surprisingly quick. Thus, it was time for him to slow down and attend to practice for a while. Moreover, it was difficult for him to have a skyrocketing rise because he was already so powerful. Thus, he might as well study the refinement of the Spiritual Treasure of Chaos. Although the Spiritual Treasure was a foreign object, it also could greatly improve one's strength.

At the thought of the Spiritual Treasure of Chaos, Minghe could not stop thinking about Hongjun, who was also in Untainted Land. Regarding the refinement of the Spiritual Treasure of Chaos, Hongjun was obviously far ahead of Minghe. Now, in Untainted Land, Minghe was unclear about how Hongjun would improve his strength. He was also uncertain if his Zixiao Palace would be promoted to a Spiritual Treasure of Chaos. All of this was unknown.

Since he could not predict Hongjun's growth, he only could strengthen himself. He and Hongjun might not be enemies, and they would probably team up with each other, but they had to cooperate based on having the same strength. Otherwise, he would be in a disadvantageous position and be subject to others at any time. It was not what he wanted, so he could only choose to strengthen himself. He wanted to have a Closed Door Meditation, so he naturally needed to find an appropriate place. Minghe had made his decision earlier. It was absolutely the best place for Closed Door Meditation. Meanwhile, it was also suitable for comprehending the Divine Law. Besides, it was good for improving one's control over the Divine Law. Though it was a little dangerous, it was still a good choice.

...

In another world, a gigantic palace towered aloft up in the ninth heaven. A plaque hung above the palace gate with the characters "Zixiao Palace" written on it. Inside the main hall, Hongjun was sitting upright above the cushion. Mysteriously, his vital force was looming. The weird vital force was full of danger, which was terrifying.

...

In the Chaos, a grey-robed Taoist held a cyan long sword. He brandished the sword and a mass of Sword Aura generated. In every place that it swept through, it stirred up the Chaos. All the Ominous Beasts of the Chaos died from the Sword Aura. After the Taoist took their corpses and collected their Origin of Chaos, his vigor and vitality also disappeared. Then, he became an ordinary Taoist and moved on in the Chaos.

...

In Untainted Land, Minghe, Hongjun, and Sect Leader Tongtian's departure had little influence on the living beings of Untainted Land. Currently, neither the Sages nor experts of the Origin could start making a move in Untainted Land, which had already become the stronghold of the Sages-to-be.

Although Untainted Land was somewhat turbulent, all the Sages turned a blind eye to it. They had seemingly given up struggling for the Luck of Untainted Land. They remained in Closed Door Meditation and had not appeared in front of all the living beings of Untainted Land for a long time. It was like the calm before the storm. One moment, it was fine and warm, and the next, it became stormy.

That day, there was a sudden change in the situation. All the living beings of Untainted Land were shocked. Originally, they had a presentiment, but they had never thought it to be such an earthshaking change. At the same moment, all the Sages appeared in Untainted Land, as if they had discussed it beforehand. They all abandoned their identities as Sages. Sad tunes lingered between Heaven and Earth, as if lamenting over the Sages' disappearance.

Every coin had two sides. All the Sages losing their Holy Seats were in the Realm of the Origin, which was the same as Sect Leader Tongtian. Their cultivation was naturally impaired and they had no rare treasures like the Origin of Chaos, so they had to practice through Closed Door Meditation. They once again disappeared from all the living beings of Untainted Land until they had completely restored their cultivation. At that time, they would return to the Chaos in silence and seek their own Fated Chances.

Laozi did not know what was in the Chaos. In his mind, since Minghe and Hongjun had gone to the Chaos, there had to be something attracting them there. Moreover, Tongtian had also gone there ahead of them. Thus, it was clear that Tongtian had to get some information from Minghe. Therefore, they had to go there. And because they had fallen behind the others, they had to do all they could to catch up with them.

Their and Laozi's departure also had little effect on Untainted Land. Everything went on as usual. All parties kept accumulating their strength. Although there would not be any big disputes, all parties could only save themselves from damage by possessing enough strength. Otherwise, once there was terrible confusion in Untainted Land, all parties would allow themselves to be trampled upon. And no one wanted to see that.

During the period of the absence of the Sages and those in the Origin, powerful parties fought for supremacy in Untainted Land. First, in the Heavenly Court—which was presided over by Haotian and Yaoji, who were two experts among the Sages-to-be
—along with the Investiture of the Gods, and the justice in the supervision of Untainted Land, it all went smoothly. It became stronger and stronger day after day. Most of the Individual Cultivators in Untainted World went to the Heavenly Court to settle down.

Originally, Honourable Ancestor Hongjun let Haotian and Yaochi control the Heavenly Court. At that time, he had combined his body with the Tao, thus he represented the Way of Heaven. Even if Hongjun were to leave right now, Haotian and Yaochi were still righteous. At present, the Heavenly Court had powerful strength and Haotian also had the betrothal gifts from Liu Er for marrying Yaoji. Therefore, it would not be difficult to expand the Heavenly Court.

The Heavenly Court was strong, but several parties were not under its control. First—the Human Tribe. And to be exact, the Holy Land of the Human Tribe. Although it hid away from the world, the tribe was the most influential party in Untainted Land. Its strength was terrifying at that time, and it had been secluded for a long time, so no one dared to provoke it.

Second—the Blood Sea. Despite Laozi and the others leaving, Liu Er had not gone away. Although he could not launch an attack, he still had strong deterrence as a Rakshasa. And even without Liu Er's deterrence, the descendant of the Blood Sea was also powerful enough to shock and awe all the parties in Untainted Land, which caused them not to dare to transgress the limits.

Third—the Wu Tribe. Although Houtu had gone to the Chaos, there were still 11 Ancestors of Sorcery in the Wu Tribe. Each one had reached the Sage-to-be Realm. Certainly, aside from the flourishing Ancestor of Sorcery Xuan Ming, all the others were not strong due to their rebirth. Moreover, their resurrected human bodies were far inferior to what they had been. It would be a long time before they completely restored them.

Fourth—the Demon Tribe. Under the threat of Minghe, the Demon Tribe united again. Luya succeeded in ascending to the throne of Demon Emperor. Although he could not temporarily awe Bai Ze or Kunpeng, he was great in leading the Demon Tribe. Moreover, he was so smart because he knew how to rope in Bai Ze and Kunpeng through decentralization. Thus, the Demon Tribe began to restore its Essential Qi that had been consumed during the battle.

Fifth—Earth Immortal's Residence. It only had Zhenyuanzi, who was at the Half Step to the Origin, but he was sufficient to deter everything. However, the disadvantage was that if Zhenyuanzi actualized the Realm of the Origin, Earth Immortal's Residence would be in an awkward situation. Right now, the strongest person in Earth Immortal's Residence was at the Peak of the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal. At that time, if it had no expert in the Sage-to-be Realm, its status would be far worse than before.

And finally—the four religions of Untainted Land. The Tribe of Humanity inhabited Mount Shouyang, and they were secluded from the world. The Tribe of Severity hid in the East Sea. The Clan of Enlightenment had contact with the nine provinces of the Human Tribe. As for Western Buddhism, it developed rapidly after breaking away from Taoism. Temporarily, it did not intend to fight for power. Even if it had the intention, it was useless because there was only one Sage-to- be, who was Medicine Buddha. Certainly, another force in a relatively awkward situation was the Dragon Tribe. Even if it had Winged Rain-dragon, who was an expert in the Sage-to-be Realm, it was weak. Although a dragon was a divine beast, it was also a demon. If the Demon Tribe could command the Dragon Tribe, the Demon Tribe's strength had to be greatly improved. Certainly, the Dragon Tribe refused to do so. Therefore, it could only lean on the Heavenly Court for making peace.

However, such a peaceful life did not last for a long time. Zhenyuanzi and Cangjie actualized the Realm of the Origin in succession. For a moment, Untainted Land seethed with enthusiasm. Later, during the Warring States Period of the Human Tribe, Kong Xuan set up Confucianism in the nine provinces of Untainted Land. Then, he established the Confucian school in the Earthstar of the small chiliocosm. Moreover, he comprehended Confucianism and chopped off Five Phases Separation. Besides that, he actualized the Origin through Confucianism and the Art of the Five Elements. It shocked all parties in Untainted Land.

Over the following days, Untainted Land seemingly entered the times of prosperity. From time to time, some people were promoted to Sages-to-be, while the old-hand Sage-to-be experts also made great progress in cultivation. Haotian, Fuxi, the Three Ancestors of the Human Tribe, Black Tortoise, Dipamkara, Kunpeng, Xuan Ming, and others were at the Half Step to the Origin in succession. Thus, Untainted Land had seemingly entered its heyday.

All the living beings of Untainted Land also discovered that although Untainted Land collapsed last time and had suffered serious damage, they accidentally found that the Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth in Untainted Land began to revive. All these changes naturally came from the Way of Heaven. Unconsciously, the Way of Heaven in Untainted Land was intensified.

Chapter 357: The Advent of the Great Way

Originally, Hongjun set up the Holy Seat and combined his body with the Tao. Although he had his own intention, all this had been aimed at complementing the Way of Heaven. Due to the Sages' birth and Hongjun's integration with the Tao, the Way of Heaven in Untainted Land had become more perfect. But with its improvement, Hongjun and the Sages became obstacles to restrict the development of the Way of Heaven.

But now, Hongjun separated himself from the Way of Heaven, and then all the Sages also abandoned their Holy Seats. Although it had some influence on the Way of Heaven, it was temporary. Without the restriction of the Sages and Hongjun, the Way of Heaven in Untainted Land became stronger. It was very good for Untainted Land, especially for the revival of the Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth. Otherwise, there could not be such a time of prosperity.

With the passage of time, Untainted Land gradually entered the period of the Journey to the West as well as the Cultivation Tribulation of Heaven and Earth, but it was the weakest one since the beginning of Untainted Land. As Monkey King was born in the Mountain of Flowers and Fruits, the Journey to the West also began. All parties started plotting. Some wanted to make profits during the Journey to the West, while others wanted to ensure safety for themselves.

As soon as Monkey King was born, there appeared a great variate. Liu Er suddenly appeared in  Untainted  Land. Originally, Liu Er had practiced Closed Door Meditation in the Chaos. Moreover, he accepted Monkey King as his disciple and gave him the name "Sun Wukong". That made the other forces unsettled, especially Buddhism. They intended to contrive a scheme, but now they had to give up and let nature take its course.

However, Sun Wukong was somewhat naughty. He stirred up trouble with the living beings of Untainted Land. First, he snatched the Compliant Golden-Hooped Rod in the East Sea Dragon Palace. Then, he created a disturbance in the Heavenly Court. Some people surely acquiesced in all these things. Otherwise, he was playing with fire by creating a tremendous uproar in the Dragon Palace and the Heavenly Palace as his own cultivation was only at the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal.

Although Sun Wukong lost the Origin of Wise Monkey, Minghe almost compensated him for all his losses. At birth, he had the vital force of the Chaos. His Origin was between the Primordial Origin and the Origin of Chaos. It was closer to the Origin of Chaos than Four Monkeys of Destruction's Origin. With such a gift, he was a genius for practicing the Real Body of Rakshasa.

More than that, Sun Wukong was the only remaining Colorful Stone between Heaven and Earth. He was full of Merit of mending the sky, so he could practice smoothly. Within a few hundred years, Sun Wukong actualized the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal. He made progress in his cultivation as easily as drinking water. However, it also had a big hidden danger that he could not follow the realm. If it were not for the Merit protecting his body, he might have earlier gone mad.

However, even if Sun Wukong made a big mistake, Buddhism did not dare to launch an attack against him. Although Liu Er and Kong Xuan could not start making a move in Untainted Land, Black Tortoise and Dipamkara, the two at the Half Step to the Origin, were there. Moreover, Yang Chan and Nezha, the two Sage-to-be experts, guarded him. Therefore, no one dared to attack him. Although there were three Sages-to-be in Buddhism, they were not strong enough to fight against the Blood Sea.

Finally, Liu Er made an attack. He led Sun Wukong to the Blood Sea and taught him for 500 years. In doing so, he intended to cultivate his temperament and improve his state of mind. 500 years later, when Sun Wukong left the mountain, he had reached the Peak of the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal Realm. Afterward, he joined Buddhism's Eastward Movement. It was the general trend of Heaven, so it was unstoppable. Therefore, he actively participated to obtain some Luck and Merit.

After the Journey to the West, Sun Wukong broke through to the Sage-to-be Realm by virtue of the Luck and Merit he had obtained by slaying demons. Meanwhile, Untainted Land was restored to calm. Although Buddhism made success in the Eastward Movement, the nine provinces of the Human Tribe still focused on Martial Arts and Confucianism. It embarrassed the people of Buddhism.

Originally, Martial Arts was the foundation of the Human Tribe. Since the birth of humans, Martial Arts had been continually inherited. Although Confucianism had been established not long before, it was also popular in the Human Tribe. Confucian scholars cultivated awe-inspiring righteousness to suppress evil spirits. Moreover, there were no restrictions to being qualified. The only thing they needed to do was read a lot. And whether one was strong or not depended on that person's comprehension. With the passage of time, all the living beings of Untainted Land were surprised to discover that the Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth had gotten richer and richer, showing signs of restoring the situation from ancient times. Meanwhile, brilliant talents came forth in succession. All these changes puzzled all the living beings of Untainted Land, but they could not find an answer. They only could practice hard to strengthen themselves to meet changes with constancy.

As the Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth revived, Untainted Land seemingly entered a time of prosperity. Fuxi and Black Tortoise actualized the Realm of the Origin one after another. Then, Haotian and the Three Ancestors of the Human Tribe successively reached the Realm of the Origin. Later, Xuan Ming integrated his body with the Tao, followed by Dipamkara and Kunpeng. The cultivators reaching the Sage-to-be Realm sprang up like mushrooms.

The striking change in Untainted Land brought about the hope of actualizing the Realm of the Origin to all the living beings of Untainted Land. All of them tried their best to practice. Previously, it was assumed that being a Sage meant that you were at the top of society. Currently, it was believed that actualizing the Origin meant being at the top of society. If an individual did not actualize the Origin, everything would be in vain when the Immeasurable Cultivation Tribulation arrived. But, what they did not know was that the Origin was just the real beginning of practice.

...

Somewhere in the Out-of-Law Area, several Ominous Beasts of Chaos roamed aimlessly. When one beast passed by a place, it disappeared in an instant. The other beasts did not care about that at all. They continuously wandered and did not discover any abnormalities. If they did discover something unusual, they would probably not have been Ominous Beasts of Chaos.

If Tongtian, who had a good command of the ways of tactical formation, was here, he definitely could discover the tactical formation that was here very quickly. Although it was covered up very well, the Chaos of this place was full of the Power of Five Elements. Obviously, it was a tactical formation of the Five Elements. Unfortunately, Ominous Beasts of Chaos did not understand any tactical formations. Naturally, they could not discover that a stranger lived permanently in the Out-of-Law Area that they used as nests.

In the Formation of Five Elements, a primitive main hall was silently suspended in the Chaos. The plaque on the gate read "Tao Seeking Hall". The three words had formed naturally and contained the supreme Great Way. Inside the hall, it was empty. Except for a stronghold and four altars, there was nothing left. Above the stronghold sat a person. Undoubtedly, it was Minghe.

"Whirr..." Minghe breathed out lightly and then opened his eyes. His vital force of terror suddenly disappeared. Afterward, he stretched out his hands and calculated by using his thumb to touch his other knuckles. "Well, I've been in Closed Door Meditation for 48,000 years." It was his longest Closed Door Meditation yet. Of course, there would be gains when effort was made. Whether it was in cultivation or in the way of weapon refinement, Minghe had gained a lot.

Minghe raised his head and looked at the four altars on both sides of the main hall with a grin on his face. In recent years, Minghe found another two beast nests and obtained two altars in the Out-of-Law Area. Meanwhile, he spent a lot of time studying the four altars. They were special Transmitting Formations rather than altars. They connected some mysterious place and transmitted some things from time to time.

Ominous Beast of Chaos, the Original Stone of Chaos, the Origin of Chaos, and Bright Metal of Chaos were all good things. During these years, Minghe had made a great achievement. However, the four Transmitting Formations were very special. He had studied the limit for a long time, but he had not figured it out. Seemingly, it was more advanced than the Limit of Chaos, or it was the specially made Limit of Chaos. In any case, Minghe was confused.

At present, the four Transmitting Formations only could output but could not input. Minghe tried hard to initiate them, but he failed. He was curious about where these things were being output from. "Is it a place that is more interior in the Out- of-Law Area? Or some other mysterious place?" Minghe affirmed that the place was certainly full of both risks and opportunities.

For most things that were output, Minghe was not interested. For example, the Origin of Chaos. If he was willing to take the time, he could find such things in the Out-of-Law Area. With only the appearance of such a thing, Minghe's Real Body of Rakshasa would react by instinct and could not wait to devour it.

It was a special Spiritual Air. He inferred that it was more advanced than the Air of Chaos because the Air of Chaos could eliminate it completely. In tens of thousands of years, Minghe totally obtained three wisps of this Spiritual Air. Each wisp greatly improved Minghe's Real Body of the Mazinger. Regrettably, there were only three wisps.

At the thought of this, Minghe could not help sighing. Unfortunately, he had no idea about the four Transmitting Formations. Otherwise, he really wanted to be transmitted to the other side of the Transmitting Formation to find more Fated Chances, even if it was very dangerous there or he could probably lose his life. As a matter of fact, seeking truth through cultivation was a dangerous thing. If someone held back out of his fear of danger, he had better not undertake cultivation.

However, even if he wanted to, there was no such opportunity. After scanning the four altars, Minghe withdrew his eyes. Instead of dreaming about the future, he would rather seize the present. No matter how big the Fated Chance was, as long as it was not yet obtained, it would be a useless existence. Thus, he should keep an eye on the present and take all opportunities to strengthen himself. Otherwise, when the Fated Chance arrived, he would be incapable of seizing it. In that case, it would be awkward.

In tens of thousands of years, Minghe practiced hard in the Out-of-Law Area. He really made great progress, which was beyond his expectation. He anticipated his reunion with Hongjun. Over the years, he had no idea of Hongjun's improvement. He looked forward to that day. Dwelling on this, he suddenly raised his head and looked extremely solemn.

His eyes were very deep. The Tao Seeking Hall, the Formation of Five Elements, and the Air of Chaos could not block his eyes. Having followed his eyes, a huge eye appeared in the Out-of-Law Area. The strong vital force was more formidable than the Way of Heaven of Untainted Land. Minghe was very familiar with it and he could not forget it. Now it had such a strong power.

The Great Way had arrived...

Chapter 358: The Battlefield of Gods and Demons

The only thing on Minghe's mind was that God's mercy was like the sea and God's might was like a prison. The charm and might of the Great Way were incomparable. Next to it, the Way of Heaven of Untainted Land appeared to be tiny. At that moment, Minghe thoroughly realized the horror of the Great Way. And in front of it, he deeply felt his own weakness.

However, he did not understand why the Great Way suddenly
arrived. "Is it perhaps because I've broken into the Out-of-Law Area? Or have destroyed several worlds? In that case, the Great Way should have come a long time ago, so why now?" Wherever his Spiritual Thoughts went, all Ominous Beasts of Chaos crawled and shivered. But what about the places beyond his Spiritual Thoughts?

...

In Untainted Land, a strong coercion arrived suddenly. Being subject to it, all the living beings of Untainted Land could not move a single step. Only the Origin could withstand it. A huge eye abruptly appeared up in the ninth heaven of Untainted Land, looking down on the entire Untainted Land. All the creatures were surprised. "Is it... the Great Way?" However, they could not figure out why the Great Way befell so suddenly.

...

In the Zixiao Palace, Hongjun was practicing with great concentration. Suddenly, a strong coercion entered his world. His facial expression greatly changed, and he raised his head to look over. He saw the huge eye appear in his world. Due to its strong coercion, Hongjun realized its origin. He also wondered why the Great Way came so suddenly.

...

At the same time, among the Deva-lokathe, Eye of the Great Way would come to any world, where creatures existed. With the sudden appearance of the Great Way, all creatures in the Deva-loka felt scared. Since the birth of the Chaos, the Great Way had never appeared in front of creatures like this. Now, it had abruptly appeared. Probably something big would happen. However, only a few people knew the specifics. Shortly afterward, the Great Way disappeared from the scene. However, all of the creatures in the world at the Sage-to-be Realm or higher got a little bit more information, which was sent by the Great Way and recorded the purpose of the advent of the Great Way. The information really astounded everyone, so the people could not digest the information for a while. After they had completely assimilated it, their eyes flashed a fiery glow.

...

In the Tao Seeking Hall, Minghe frowned and looked solemn for no other reason other than all the additional information in his mind, which was full of infinite enticement. Minghe felt the tingle of desire even in the current realm. Meanwhile, he also felt the creepy Menace Intent behind it.

He knew that when he received the information, everyone who was in the Sage-to-be Realm or above also received the information. It mentioned the Out-of-Law Area, which was Minghe's location. Until that moment, he did not know its name
—the River between Heaven and Death. It was located very close between Fated Chance and death. As Minghe expected, the River between Heaven and Death was just a zone of transition. The Chaotic Storm Wall outside was one "shoreside" of the River between Heaven and Death. He had once seen the other "shoreside". It was also a windwall, which was completely formed by space storms and space turbulence.

Minghe visited the depths of the River between Heaven and Death and saw that windwall. It made him feel small and insignificant. Its brutality was full of infinite Menace Intent, without any gaps. Although he predicted that the other side of the four Transmitting Formations collected by him was probably inside, he did not rush in facing such a windwall.

At this moment, the Great Way revealed everything in front of the Deities of the Deva-loka. Minghe finally knew what the space storm was. It was a special world that was called the Battlefield of Gods and Demons by the Great Way. Although it was filled with infinite killing intent, this Fated Chance was also tempting.

Minghe wondered about the origin of the Battlefield of Gods and Demons and its Fated Chance. From the information provided by the Great Way, it contained boundless Fated Chance. However, it did not mention the specifics at all. It should not be weak at all if it could be called a Fated Chance by the Great Way. Furthermore, the Battlefield of Gods and Demons was mixed with the Origin of the Deva-loka, so he had to imagine that it was formidable.

After the God Deification Ceremony, Minghe left Untainted Land. When he returned back to this place, he discovered the vital force of the Origin of Untainted Land. He never thought that it also mixed with the Origin of the Deva-loka, except for the partial Origin of Untainted Land. Although Minghe did not know why the Great Way acted so, he predicted that it was related to the secrets of the Battlefield of Gods and Demons.

To his surprise, one puzzle that Minghe was trying to figure out was solved according to the information transmitted by the Great Way. It was the function of the four Transmitting Formations in the Tao Seeking Hall. However, there was only one remaining formation. During the advent of the Great Way, the four Transmitting Formations integrated by accident. Their size and appearance had not changed a bit, but their patterns became more complex.

As he stretched out his hand, the Transmitting Formation immediately got smaller and flew into his palm. Now, it was totally different. It had been activated and gave off a strong space vital force. If he was willing to drive it with supernatural power, it could enter the Battlefield of Gods and Demons at once. However, he restrained himself from doing so.

With the Transmitting Formation, Minghe could enter the Battlefield of Gods and Demons at any time. Therefore, it was unnecessary for him to be anxious. Since the Great Way had brought the information to the entire Deva-loka, Untainted Land was also unexceptional, which was to say that his four disciples would receive this information. And according to their personalities, they would not miss this Fated Chance and would surely come here.

Minghe expected that they should have actualized. He was uncertain of the danger of the Battlefield of Gods and Demons. Moreover, if they had not found the Transmitting Formation in the River between Heaven and Death, they only could rush to the space storm. Otherwise, they could not enter the Battlefield of Gods and Demons. He knew the danger of the space storm best. Even he could not ensure his safe passage, not to mention them.

In the Battlefield of Gods and Demons, everything was unknown. Judging from the Ominous Beasts of Chaos that had originally transmitted from the Transmitting Formation, it was not safe inside. Perhaps numerous Ominous Beasts of Chaos were transmitted from the Battlefield of Gods and Demons for countless years. The beasts in the River between Heaven and Death seemed to be innumerable. Thus, it was easy to imagine the scene of the Battlefield of Gods and Demons.

At the thought of this, Minghe put away the Tao Seeking Hall and the Flag of Five Elements used for the Primordial Five Elements Formation. He flew outward and fought his way out of the River between Heaven and Death. In the end, he stopped outside the Chaotic Storm Wall and waited for Liu Er and the others. The Great Way had already revealed the location of the Battlefield of Gods and Demons. His current location was a vital place on the way from Untainted Land to the Battlefield of Gods and Demons.

When he was waiting for Liu Er and the others, Minghe also saw some experts of the Origin from other worlds. It looked as if they had come to the Battlefield of Gods and Demons to seek the Fated Chance. He did not take notice of them and neither did they. Although they did not know why Minghe did not go inside, that had nothing to do with them. Their top priority was to find the Transmitting Formation. Otherwise, they only could break through the Area of the Space Storm. There were only about 360 Transmitting Formations in total. Minghe alone had obtained four. Obviously, it was a bloody war because the remaining 356 Transmitting Formations were scrambled by so many worlds in Untainted Land. Moreover, there were numerous Ominous Beasts of Chaos in the River between Heaven and Death. In order to contest for the Transmitting Formation, they had to deal with these beasts first, which was not easy.

To his surprise, Minghe saw another familiar face, Laozi, the Grand Pure One, before Liu Er and the others had arrived. At that time, Laozi had reached the Late Stage of the Origin. Moreover, he could break through to the Peak of the Origin at any time. Naturally, Laozi also discovered Minghe. They had no relations with each other, so they just quickly glanced at each other. Then, Laozi plunged into the Chaotic Storm Wall.

For several months, Minghe sat cross-legged in the Chaos and continued to absorb the Air of Chaos for cultivation. Suddenly, he opened his eyes and some figures appeared before his eyes. Among them were his four disciples, Liu Er, Kong Xuan, Black Tortoise, and Dipamkara. He was somewhat shocked by the number of people. There were more than 10 people and they all had reached the Realm of the Origin. He was not surprised to see Zhenyuanzi and Cangjie because when he left, those two had already been at the Half Step to the Origin. But he was surprised that there were 13 people in total remaining, including Xuan Ming, Fuxi, Haotian, the Three Ancestors of the Human Tribe, and Kunpeng. Seemingly, Untainted Land had changed greatly since he left.

Liu Er and the others flew over to Minghe. When his four disciples saw him, they instantly beamed and worshiped him. "Master!" When Zhenyuanzi and the others saw Minghe right there waiting for them, they felt very surprised and extended their greetings to him. Although he had not released any vital force, they could feel some intangible coercion, as if he could kill them in an instant.

Minghe looked his four disciples up and down for a while, and then he said, "Pretty good! You really practiced hard after I left. Three of you have reached the Early Stage of the Origin while one has reached the Middle Stage of the Origin. Thus, you're qualified to enter the Battlefield of Gods and Demons. However..." With this, he paused and looked at everyone. Then, he continued by saying, "you're just barely qualified."

Chapter 359: Meeting and Parting

After hearing Minghe say that, Liu Er and the others were stunned. Minghe should have known that this would happen, but he was not making sensationalised claims. All 13 people had reached the Origin, but they could not survive in the River between Heaven and Death just by depending on their strength, not to mention the dangerous Battlefield of God and Demon, where everything inside was unknown.

Zhenyuanzi saw Minghe look somewhat solemn and asked, "Fellow Taoist, since you said so, you must have a certain understanding of the place, right? You've been in the Chaos for so many years, and your strength has improved a lot. Are you not sure how to confront with Battlefield of God and Demon?" Even though he was not clear about Minghe's strength, Zhenyuanzi still knew that Minghe was far stronger than them.

Minghe shook his head, and turned to glance at Chaotic Storm Wall. Then, he said to them all, "As for Battlefield of God and Demon, we not only need to handle the threat from inside, but also the danger from Deva-loka of Chaos. It's a life or death struggle for Fated Chance. Depending on my current strength, I can only survive in the River between Heaven and Death." They also knew that the River between Heaven and Death was a transitional zone between the Chaos and Battlefield of God and Demon. However, they had no idea about what was inside. Everyone who just rushed in did not know that. Only those who really entered the River between Heaven and Death knew its danger. Compared with those who did not know the length of the River between Heaven and Death, those people who just broke in were negligible.

Seeing that everyone was stunned, Minghe began to introduce the River between Heaven and Death. "The information given by the Great Way is very clear. If you want to enter Battlefield of God and Demon, you need to find Transmitting Formation in the River between Heaven and Death, or break in Area of Space Storm. In either case, there're many risks. Even you reach the Realm of Origin, you will probably lose your life inside."

"You did not have to think about breaking in Area of Space Storm. Even if I had such profound cultivation now, I cannot assure that I can break in safe and sound. Moreover, if even if I break in successfully, I won't be sure about which destination I would be sent to. Supposing that I got into a dangerous place, I was afraid that I could hardly keep myself alive. Therefore, you'd better not break into the Area of Space Storm, unless you have no other alternatives." "In the case of seeking Transmitting Formation, you must deal with Ominous Beasts of Chaos in the River between Heaven and Death. Among the Countless Ominous Beasts of Chaos, many have reached the Origin and a very few have reached the Peak of the Origin. Before you arrived, I saw more than 20 experts of Origin enter the River between Heaven and Death. However, they are negligible among the countless Ominous Beasts of the Chaos."

Minghe explained everything in the River between Heaven and Death with understatement, but Zhenyuanzi, Liu Er, and others trembled with fear after hearing that. They never thought that the River between Heaven and Death could be so dangerous. It seemed to validate what happened later. All of a sudden, Chaotic Storm Wall shook and several people escaped from the wall haphazardly. Surely, they were being forced to run away by Ominous Beasts of Chaos.

Liu Er saw it and asked with a smile, "Master, you know so much about the River between Heaven and Death. I guess that you should have gone in. Have you found the Transmitting Formation? If so, we don't need to go in the River between Heaven and Death and face the risks. Let's be directly transmitted to Battlefield of God and Demon." Seeing Liu Er grin cheekily, Minghe couldn't help but taunt, "You're a very clever monkey. Right, I've found the Transmitting Formation, but it's not the time to go in. If I want to enter, I would have gone in earlier instead of waiting for you here. That's because I feel worried about you. Although you're here now, I'm in no hurry to enter Battlefield of God and Demon."

Upon hearing that, they were also surprised. Minghe continued to say, "Although there's limitless Fated Chance in Battlefield of God and Demon, it's also dangerous. Having reached the Realm of Origin, you can hardly take advantage in the face of Ominous Beasts of the Chaos, which reached the Origin. Instead, you'd better gain experience first in the River between Heaven and Death."

"Similar to Wild Beasts, Ominous Beasts of the Chaos have strong bodies, but not high intelligence. The Origin of Chaos inside their bodies is the best objects for improving cultivation. When you get used to fighting with Ominous Beasts of the Chaos, it won't be too late for us to enter again." Ominous Beasts of the Chaos fought at close quarters. If they could not find the way to control the beasts, they would suffer losses easily.

For Minghe's proposal, Zhenyuanzi and others naturally had no objection. Seeing this, Minghe led them to go in the River between Heaven and Death. When Zhenyuanzi and others sensed the horror of the River between Heaven and Death, they understood why Minghe had asked them to get used to this place for a while. If they had entered Battlefield of God and Demon in their current states, they would very likely take a beating.

As time went by, more and more experts of Origin went in the River between Heaven and Death. Meanwhile, Minghe also met Laozi, Origin, Tongtian, and so on in the place. Shortly afterwards, almost all those actualized the Realm of Origin in Untainted Land gathered together. Except for Hongjun, other people gradually rejoined Minghe's party.

Minghe, Laozi, Origin, Tongtian, Goddess Nvywa, Houtu, Zhunti, Jieyin, Liu Er, Zhenyuanzi, Cangjie, Kong Xuan, Black Tortoise, Dipamkara, Haotian, Xuan Ming, Kunpeng, Suiren- Shi, Youchao-Shi, Ziyi-Shi, and Fuxi made up the 21 people at the Realm of the Origin. It was a fearsome power, further reinforced by their disciples and tribesmen in their space treasures.

The bunch of people from Untainted Land could crush everything in the River between Heaven and Death. Even the beast tide of the Chaos could not cause danger to them. Gradually, other people entering the place also began to gang up. After all, it was hard for an individual to survive in the River between Heaven and Death, let alone reap any gains.

However, the crowd may not be a good thing. Minghe and the others gathered together for the sake of interest, so they would separate for the same reason. Moreover, there was originally a wedge between them. Therefore, it would be impossible for them to sincerely cooperate. Furthermore, there were numerous Fated Chances in Battlefield of God and Demon. If they got what they wanted, no one would be willing to give way, so separation was inevitable.

After traveling around the River between Heaven and Death for hundreds of years, the nearby Ominous Beasts of the Chaos had already been sorted out. As for such beasts in other places, they would not bother to kill. They obtained a lot of the Origin of Chaos and Transmitting Formations. Instead of wasting time here, they would rather enter Battlefield of God and Demon.

All good things must come to an end. It was the time to separate. Minghe and others stopped in the River between Heaven and Death. Although they had not formally separated, they obviously split up into several parts. Laozi, Origin, Jieyin, and Zhunti teamed up. Tongtian, Goddess Nvywa, Haotian, Fuxi, and Kunpeng gathered together. Houtu and Xuan Ming formed a group. The remainder chose to be with Minghe.

That's the way it was. Because there were so many people, inequality in the distribution of acquisition was inevitable. In due course, there would surely be conflicts. Thus, they had better choose to be apart and band together in smaller groups. In this way, they could guarantee their strength and reduce competitors at the same time. Untainted Land was divided into four parts, which met Minghe's expectations.

Laozi, Origin, Jieyin, and Zhunti had cooperated with each other before in the Battle of Gods Investiture. Although there was animosity between Laozi and Origin, as long as there were enough benefits, they could put that hatred behind them. Each of the four people was strong, so if they joined hands, they would be well-matched against experts at the Peak of the Origin Realm. Presumably, they could survive even in Battlefield of God and Demon.

The five-person group formed by Tongtian, Goddess Nvywa, Haotian, Fuxi, and Kunpeng was a little poorer in terms of power, compared with Laozi's four-person group. With regards to strength, Tongtian was not inferior to Laozi. Moreover, there were many Demon Tribes under the leadership of Tongtian. Thus, it was understandable for them to team up with Goddess Nvywa and Kunpeng. Although Fuxi was from Human Tribe, he and Goddess Nvywa were brother and sister, so they should join hands. As for Haotian, he was reluctant to work with Minghe due to his ambition, even if he was closer to Minghe.

Although the group was only made up of Houtu and Xuanming, their bodies were not worse than those of Ominous Beasts. More surprisingly, Houtu refined the other 11 Ancestors of sorcerer's Blood of Essence and became Real Entity of Pangu. Although it was not complete True Body of Rakshasa, it was not far away from that. With the top 10 Ancestors of sorcerer in their Magic Weapon, it was not impossible for the two people to survive in Battlefield of God and Demon.

Naturally, Minghe's party had the largest number of people. Other than his four disciples, Zhenyuanzi and Cangjie  were more willing to follow Minghe. As for Three Ancestors of Human Tribe, it was needless to mention. The  success  of Human Tribe basically depended on Minghe. They were more willing to trust Minghe over the other three parties.

Looking at the departing figures of the other three parties, Minghe signed inwardly. Although some of them had personal grievances with him, it was unknown if they could meet again some other day after the separation. As for that mangled kindness and enmity, it was better to let it go. On the way to Supreme Great Way, there was no right or wrong.

The people from Untainted Land gathered and made a lot of noise, but to Minghe's surprise, Hongjun was unresponsive. He was not sure whether he did not discern them or did not want to meet them. After all, the River between Heaven and Death was so large, as if it was endless. Thus, Hongjun probably failed to meet them.

That's all right. Minghe did not like to grapple with problems. To him, Hongjun was a good opponent. They could be friends or enemies. However, nothing was important except Minghe himself. As long as he was strong enough, it did not matter even if his enemy was Hongjun. If Hongjun were to block him, Minghe would show no mercy.

After looking at the River between Heaven and Death again, Minghe no longer felt attached to the place. Although there was something attractive here, Battlefield of God and Demon was obviously more tempting now. Minghe stretched out his hands and summoned the Transmitting Formation. He constantly injected supernatural powers to it and its light became brighter and brighter. As the white light flashed, Minghe's party thoroughly disappeared, as if they never appeared in the River between Heaven and Death.

When everyone who broke in the River between Heaven and Death entered Battlefield of God and Demon, the river, where the actual killing constantly took place for hundreds of years, had its calmness restored. Eyes of the Great Way appeared in the sky above the river again. It seemed to have felt joy might even be smiling.

Chapter 360: New World

There was a great quite valley, surrounded by high hills, with trees growing exuberantly. Countless precious Spiritual Medicine grew on the hills and in the valley. Dozens of bulky monsters wandered around leisurely, roaring from time to time. Sometimes, they fought fiercely with each other, causing the earth to tremble and mountains to sway. As a result, countless precious Spiritual Medicines were destroyed.

In the center of the valley was a stone table, which was covered with mosses and vines. It was conceivable that the stone table had not been used in a long time. Some strange patterns mysteriously showed in the place not covered by mosses. At this very moment, the strange patterns began to give off a silver flame, penetrating through the mosses and vines, which was brilliant for a moment.

After the silver flame suddenly became strong and dispersed, the stone table returned to its former calm. However, another 10 figures suddenly appeared on the stone table. In face of these sudden visiting outsiders, Ominous Beasts of Chaos emitted roars of rage, filled with intent to kill, as if they were claiming that the place was their territory. Naturally, the 10 men were Minghe's party who just entered Battlefield of God and Demon. Minghe and the others glanced around and discovered that they were besieged by dozens of Ominous Beasts of Chaos. Their knitted brows made them look more solemn. The transmission of the beasts' roars triggered a chain reaction among the nearby beasts.

At the sight of this, Minghe stretched out his hands and five flags immediately rotated in his palm. He gently threw them into the air, and the five flags were dancing in the wind. Then, a Taoist Seal formed in his hand. He reprimanded gently, "Five Elements revolve and cover all over the sky and earth." As the five flags flew to the periphery of the valley, a Primordial Five Elements Formation had been arranged in a flash.

With the establishment of Primordial Five Elements Formation, all roaring cries from the outside were heard no more. Only dozens of Ominous Beasts of Chaos remained in the valley. Although the beasts were few, dozens of them were in the Origin Realm. The strongest one was at Middle Stage of Origin. According to their appearance, it could be assumed that they were of the same species.

The Ominous Beasts of the Chaos immediately launched attacks against the intruders, including Minghe. Minghe did not intend to fight back but said, "My Fellow Taoists and disciples, you're responsible for dealing with them. I still need to go over here." Upon hearing this, Zhenyuanzi and  others  instantly fought with the numerous Ominous Beasts of Chaos.

Minghe carefully looked around the place. Being different from the Chaos, there was no Air of Chaos there. It was a small world, with the sun hanging in the ninth heaven. A special Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth. Simply by breathing, Minghe discovered that the Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth in the small world was very peculiar.

As Rakshasa, Minghe absorbed Air of Chaos for cultivation. The Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth in Untainted Land was almost useless for him. However, that in the world was a little similar to primordial Spiritual Air. Moreover, it was more advanced, which was comparable with Air of Chaos. Unexpectedly, Minghe could absorb that in the world for practicing his Real Body of Mazinger.

The most amazing find was the stability of the world, namely the level of the world. Whether in Chaos or Untainted Land, Minghe's Spiritual Thoughts was widespread, and he also could realize spatial displacement easily. Right now, he could not do so in the world. His Spiritual Thoughts spread to less than tens of millions of miles. It was harder to open spatial channel, and its distance was short. After seeing the battle between Zhenyuanzi and others and Ominous Beasts of Chaos, Minghe was more convinced of his conjecture. The world of Battlefield of God and Demon was probably more advanced than Untainted Land. Naturally, they could not display their destructive strength.

Zhenyuanzi and others fought hard with Ominous Beasts of Chaos. Actually, their power of Taoist laws was constrained by the Divine Law of Battlefield of God and Demon, rather than they became weaker. The beasts also suffered the same situation, but they had got used to it in the world. Zhenyuanzi and others just arrived, they naturally suffered losses. When they were accustomed to it, they would become better.

Naturally, the best way to adapt to the environment was by fighting. Although it was time-consuming, it was beneficial to them. Compared with Zhenyuanzi and others, Liu Er had a wonderful time fighting. Like Minghe, Liu Er was based on the human body and supplemented by Original Spirit. Although the small world was suppressed by the power of Taoist laws, Liu Er was affected slightly, because his combat power mainly came from the human body. Minghe made no attempts to interfere with them. It might take some time to cope with these Ominous Beasts of Chaos, but it was good for them to adapt as quick as possible. Although Minghe was also constrained by the world, he had such profound cultivation that the beasts were no match for him. If Minghe struck them, they would be killed in a snap.

Although all had reached the Realm of Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of Origin, the realm was classified into four stages, including Early Stage, Secondary Stage, Late Stage, and Peak. Unlike the Sage, there was a huge disparity in strength between two stages of the Realm of Origin. The Early Stage of the Sage could fight with the Secondary Stage of the Sage for a long time. However, the Realm of Origin was different. Each stage had an advantage over the previous one.

Afte destroying World of Five Elements, Minghe carried out Closed Door Meditation in the River between Heaven and Death for tens of thousands of years. As a result, his strength improved significantly, which was due to the Magical Tao Mirror. Its 10-fold comprehension amplification was amazing. Within tens of thousands of years, Minghe and Three Separations had made great progress in strength. Unfortunately, the Magical Tao Mirror only could be used by one person at a time. If Minghe could use it with Three Separations, his strength would be more terrifying. Now, Minghe had changed a lot. The Immortal Demon Body had reached the Completion. Only by the human body, he could be matchless in comparison with experts at the Peak of the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of Origin Realm. However, Original Spirit had reached the Peak of the Realm of Origin now. Having reached such a realm internally and externally, Minghe became stronger. More importantly, he had begun to comprehend the Realm of Fate Golden Immortal of Origin.

There was A half step to Origin above the Sage-to-be and below the Origin. Likewise, there was the Half Fate above the Peak of Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of Origin. Currently, Minghe was planning to reach this realm. As estimated by Minghe, Hongjun had got into the Half Fate Realm at least. Probably when he met Minghe in the Chaos, he had started to comprehend this realm.

However, it was hard to comprehend the Fate Realm. After getting into the Peak of the Origin, Minghe comprehended the realm for thousands of years. It was impossible to comprehend this realm only by scratching the surface. It would take a lot of time to really start to comprehend the realm. But with the help of the Magical Tao Mirror, he believed that he would be able to reach the Fate Realm. At that time, he could be comparable to the Way of Heaven in Untainted Land. Minghe's Three Separations also made great progress. "Evil Separation" Red Lotus Taoist and "Selfcentric Separation" Musen had reached the Late Stage of Origin. By comparison, Musen only practiced Martial Arts, and his cultivation was more profound than Red Lotus Taoist. Red Lotus Taoist comprehended the Principle of Karma and the Law of Killing at the same time. Thus, their combat powers were well-matched.

Since he devoured World of Five Elements, "Three Separations" Heaven and Earth Taoist had always been  at Closed Door Meditation. He had not yet woken up until now. As the World of Heaven and Earth inside his body grew rapidly, his strength also rose suddenly and sharply. After the Way of Heaven of World of Five Elements and the Origin integrated into the World of Heaven and Earth, the World of Heaven and Earth became more sound and solid. Heaven and Earth Taoist also needed a lot of time to stabilize his own cultivation.

Among Zhenyuanzi, Liu Er, and the others, only Liu Er had got into Middle Stage of Origin, owing to his strong True Body of Rakshasa. But for the cultivation of Original Spirit, he only reached Early Stage of the Origin. Compared with practicing outside Battlefield of God and Demon, they would make progress several times faster there, even if they had no Fated Chance. In Battlefield of God and Demon, there was intense and special Spiritual Air of Heaven and Earth. Moreover, it would be smoother to comprehend the Divine Law here. Minghe could clearly discern the Vital Force of the Divine Law drifting in the small world. The vital force was highly beneficial to comprehend the Divine Law. It was thus clear that the Way of Heaven in this world was stronger than that in Untainted Land.

Strangely, Minghe did not discern the vital force of any Way of Heaven after comprehension for a while. He doubted if the Way of Heaven in the world was too strong. Couldn't those between Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of Origin perceive the Way of Heaven? No. For living beings of Untainted Land, if an individual reached the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal Realm, he could sense a little vital force of the Way of Heaven.

"Could it be... " Minghe suddenly raised his head. He had a wild assumption that if there was no Way of Heaven in the world, who would be in charge of the Great Way. At thought of this, he was startled by the world of fantasy under the control of the Great Way. It was more dangerous than what he expected.

Surely, it was only Minghe's conjecture, so it was hard to confirm. At least, Minghe must get into the Fate Realm, which could not be realized overnight. His top priority was to understand the world as soon as possible and gain a firm foothold in Battlefield of God and Demon. In doing so, he could plot to seek the Fated Chance called by the Great Way in Battlefield of God and Demon.

At present, the valley they located was splendid. It was large with various precious Spiritual Medicine growing there. As Zhenyuanzi's party came here, he brought along many disciples and tribesmen. Even Liu Er's party also brought Chixuan, Yaoji, Yang Chan, Nezha, and Sun Wukong. Blood Sea in Untainted Land and The Nether World were managed by Minghe's Clones of Blood God, so there would be no problem.

The resources in the valley were enough for those who had not actualized the Origin. Moreover, it could yield twice the result with half the effort to practice in Battlefield of God and Demon. It would be easier to actualize Way of Origin there than in Untainted Land. Outside the valley was continuous mountains, in which the resources would probably be countless. They had taken root there since ancient times.
