Such a force seemed to be unreal and illusory, and it was too obscure and difficult to understand.
However, when he thought about it carefully, it seemed that since he started cultivating in the southern territory of the Darchu Dynasty, he’d already had a trace of relation to ‘Samsara’.
The only reason for this was the Netherworld Register and the Condemn Evil Brush.
On the other hand, the critical factor that allowed these two precious treasures of the Netherworld to enter into Chen Xi’s hands was extremely absurd. Because he’d obtained them while he worked together with Ling Bai and killed a descendent of the southern territory’s Su Clan.
The entire process couldn’t be considered to be something that carried traces of fate at all.
But when he thought about it carefully, it seemed like the unseen will of the heavens had allowed it to occur.
Coupled with his experiences from the recent years, a trace of a dazed feeling couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart. Samsara. Exactly what sort of force is it?
Why would I only be able to understand its true profundities after I attain the Daolord Realm and comprehend the Grand Dao of Destiny?
If I completely comprehend the Terminus Dao Insight now before fusing them with the Grand Dao profundities of Paramita and Oblivion, then would I be able to form the core force of energy of Samsara?
Did the Third Netherworld Emperor suffer being crushed by the great figures of the world because of the energy of Samsara?
When he thought up to here, a strong impulse couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart, but he forcefully restrained it in the end.
He was very clearly aware that the matter was absolutely not as simple as he thought, and if he rashly gave it a try now, then it might cause severe consequences.
“Little Junior Brother, I’ll take you to a place to cultivate. Perhaps you’ll be able to seize these five years of time to allow your strength to undergo another obvious transformation.” When he noticed that Chen Xi seemed to be slightly distracted, Wu Xuechan seemed to have discerned something, and he stood up and spoke.
“Oh, where are we going”? Chen Xi immediately returned to his sense.
“You’ll know once we get there.” Wu Xuechan smiled mysteriously.
“Hahaha! Then you two can go ahead. I’ve had enough of that damnable place, and I don’t want to take another step in there.” Tie Yunhai seemed to take pleasure in Chen Xi’s impending misfortune, and he roared with laughter.
This caused Chen Xi’s brows to raise. Could it be that there’s some sort of secret about it?
Before he could react, Wu Xuechan flicked his sleeve, and then a powerful force enveloped Chen Xi. In the next moment, both Wu Xuechan and Chen Xi vanished simultaneously on the spot.
An ancient stone pagoda stood towering while densely covered in mottled traces of time. It seemed to have experienced the baptism of countless years, and it emanated a solemn and lofty aura.
It stood towering in the vast ocean of clouds while a Suncrow had transformed into the scorching sun that hung in the sky, and it shot down bright golden light that covered the stone pagoda in a brilliant and divine aura.
When Chen Xi’s field of vision recovered, he’d arrived at this ocean of clouds and laid eyes upon this stone pagoda.
“This pagoda is called the Tower of Beginnings. It was personally created by Master all those years ago, and it was specially prepared for the disciples of the sect to cultivate in.” Wu Xuechan stood at the side while sighing with slight emotion. “All those years ago when I was still at the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God just like you, I’d cultivated here as well. When you enter it this time, perhaps you’ll be able to see the brand of the Grand Dao that I left behind all those years ago.”
The Tower of Beginnings!
A wisp of anticipation couldn’t help but arise in Chen Xi’s heart.
“Little Junior Brother, only the disciples of our Oracle Mountain can step foot into the Tower of Beginnings.” Wu Xuechan spoke abruptly.
Chen Xi instantly came to an understanding, and he slapped himself on the forehead and said with a smile, “If Eldest Senior Brother hadn’t reminded me, then I would have almost forgotten about that.”
As he spoke, he flicked his sleeve, and divine radiance effused out before Ye Yan, Senior White, and Little Bao’s figures surged into appearance.
“Where’s this?” All three of them were bewildered and extremely dazed.
“It’s naturally Oracle Mountain.” Chen Xi smiled as he swiftly explained the situation to them, and only then did Ye Yan and the others come to an understanding.
“Greetings, Grand Lord.” Ye Yan bowed respectfully to Wu Xuechan who stood at the side.
Little Bao grinned as his way of greeting Wu Xuechan.
As for Senior White, he kept his wings behind his back and seemed unperturbed, and he wasn’t willing to submit before Wu Xuechan at all.
Wu Xuechan nodded with a smile on his face, and then he looked at Chen Xi and said, “There’s still one more.”
Chen Xi was stunned and felt slightly puzzled.
Wu Xuechan pointed at Chen Xi’s ear.
Chen Xi’s expression immediately froze. How could I have forgotten about her!?
He held his ear with one hand and carefully withdrew a little beauty that was only a little over an inch tall from within it. She had an extraordinary and beautiful appearance, yet her eyes were closed tightly as if she was in deep sleep.
Shockingly, it was the little princess of the Primeval Micro Race, A’Liang!
All those years ago when he was heading to Snow Ink Region from the Last Days Domain, A’Liang had forcefully resisted Ye Yan’s full forced strike in order to rescue Chen Xi. In the end, even though she survived it, she’d been unconscious ever since, and she still hadn’t awakened until now.
Ye Yan was stunned when she saw A’Liang, and then her expression instantly became slightly uncomfortable. Because she was the culprit for all of this.
“I….” Ye Yan opened her mouth with the intention of saying something.
However, Chen Xi waved his hand and said, “The past is in the past, there’s no need to mention it again.”
“Leave her to me.” Wu Xuechan smiled warmly as he received A’Liang from Chen Xi, and he sized her up carefully before he spoke with slight surprise. “I never expected that this little girl actually obtained the true inheritance of the Primeval Micro Race, the Death Tempering Technique. When she awakens, her cultivation will probably undergo another shocking transformation.”
When he spoke up to here, he said to Chen Xi, “Little Junior Brother, there’s no need to worry. This little girl gained benefit from disaster, and she’s fine.”
Chen Xi heaved a sigh of relief in his heart, and he felt both guilty and relaxed in his heart. In the recent years, he’d been constantly busy with his own affairs that he’d actually almost forgotten A’Liang, and he felt that it shouldn’t have happened.
“Alright, you can enter the Tower of Beginnings. Martial Uncle Di Shun resides within it. So, he’ll naturally provide you with guidance on how to cultivate in the tower. As for these friends of yours, they’ll reside in Oracle Mountain for now, so you don’t have to worry about anything.” Wu Xuechan smiled as he instructed.
“Then I’ll be troubling Eldest Senior Brother.” Chen Xi cupped his hands as he spoke.
“Go on, I’ll naturally come notify you when the Dao Discussion is about to begin.” As soon as he finished speaking, he flicked his sleeve and vanished while taking Ye Yan, Senior White, Little Bao, and A’Liang along with him.
Chen Xi didn’t hesitate to push open the door and flash into the Tower of Beginnings.
To Chen Xi’s surprise, it was actually an expanse of the starry sky that resided in the tower!
Numerous stars were spread out within it, yet all of them were stationary. Moreover, every single one of them emanated a completely different aura of the Grand Dao.
Especially shocking to Chen Xi was that the auras of the Grand Dao were seemingly material, and they revealed all sorts of gorgeous colors like crimson red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and so on and so forth.
“You’re Chen Xi?” A voice that was indifferent like water resounded.
Chen Xi turned his head and noticed a green lotus had bloomed at the side of the starry sky, and a slender and mighty figure was seated cross-legged within it.
He wore a cloth robe and had a golden violet colored crown of feathers on his head. His backbone was like a pillar that could hold up the heavens while his shoulders were like mountain ranges that lay across the world, and his handsome yet rough face was covered in a focused and firm expression.
When looked at from afar, it seemed like one wasn’t looking at a person, and it was like gazing up a god of creation that resided in the world. His imposing aura was boundlessly vast and supreme!
Merely a single glance at him caused Chen Xi’s heart to tremble, and a strand of reverence couldn’t help but arise in his heart. Moreover, it was even to the extent that he had the impulse to prostrate himself in sincere worship.
He was very clearly aware that this had occurred because the gap in their cultivations was too huge, and his mind was unconsciously affected by his imposing aura.
After all, even when he faced a Daolord like this Eldest Senior Brother, Wu Xuechan, Chen Xi had never been so deeply shaken!
There was no doubt that this old man with a dignified and firm expression and an imposing aura that seemed like that of an extraordinary god of creation was the Second Founding Ancestor of Oracle Mountain, Di Shun!
“Disciple Chen Xi greets Martial Uncle.” Chen Xi took a deep breath before he bowed.
“You need not be courteous before me.” Di Shun’s eyes were like stellar bodies and surged with a deep aura of the Dao. He stared at Chen Xi for a long time before a wisp of a smile couldn’t help but arise on the corners of his mouth. “A very good little fellow. No wonder you were able to obtain the acknowledgement of Senior Brother Fuxi’s abode. Martial Nephew Xuechan has already told me about you. Since you’ve returned to the sect, then settle down and cultivate. There’s no need to be troubled by the matters of the outside world any longer.”
“Martial Uncle is right.” Even though Chen Xi tried his best to maintain his calm, he still couldn’t avoid adhering to formalities when facing a senior like Di Shun who was like a living fossil.
This couldn’t be helped. Di Shun’s imposing aura seemed to be invisible, yet it struck directly at the heart, and it was utterly impossible to resist.
“Every single star in the Tower of Beginnings is formed from a type of Grand Dao, and you’ll be able to obtain inconceivable benefits when cultivating on them.” Di Shun didn’t waste his breath and was straightforward. “However, in order to cultivate on them, you must endure the suffering of the pressure of the Grand Dao that presses down upon your body. The greater the pressure you’re able to endure, the greater the benefits you’ll obtain as you cultivate.”
“So that’s how it is.” Only now did Chen Xi come to an understanding, and he realized that it wasn’t as simple as he’d imagined.
“Look, the star of the Grand Dao covers an area of 3,000km in the tower. The further you go, the stronger the pressure of the Grand Dao will be. All you have to do is search for a star that’s suitable for you to cultivate on. You must not try to go beyond your limits, otherwise, it’ll only be harmful to you.” Di Shun’s gaze shot towards the starry sky in the distance. “All those years ago, your Senior Brother Wu Xuechan stepped foot onto a star that was 2,700km from here while he was at the perfection-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, and he advanced into the Imperial Monarch Realm in one go. After he emerged from his closed door cultivation, he immediately attained the position of Region Lord.
“Your Senior Brother Tang Xian stepped foot onto a star that was 2,500km away all those years ago, and when he’d similarly advanced into the Imperial Monarch Realm when he emerged from his closed door cultivation.
“You’re current only at the advanced-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm, so I presume that you have come to attain the perfection-stage of the Universe Enlightened Ancestral God Realm. Remember that you must not advance rashly to fulfil your desire of success. I suggest that you choose a star within 2,000km from here to cultivate on.” Di Shun spoke in a flat tone and described everything about the tower.
“Thank you for your guidance, Martial Uncle.” Chen Xi cupped his hands once more.
“Go on, don’t waste any more time. The path of Godhood seems to possess boundless lifespan for one to utilize. However, when one intends to step foot onto the end of the Grand Dao and fight for supremacy with the heavens, then a single slow step would cause one to be slow in everything, and one would be bound to miss a great deal of fortuitous encounters.” Di Shun reminded. “Just like the Forgotten Grounds of Chaos. If your current cultivation was only at the Domain Enlightened Spirit God Realm, then you would definitely be unable to enter it, and if you were unable to enter it, then it meant that you wouldn’t have a chance to become a Region Lord after you advanced into the Imperial Monarch Realm and intend to obtain Region Energy.”
Chen Xi’s heart shook, and he spoke with a firm gaze. “Don’t worry Martial Uncle, Disciple will naturally spare no effort on my path towards the Dao, and I’ll do everything in my power to succeed.”
As soon as he finished speaking, Chen Xi took a deep breath, and then he turned around and walked towards the area that was densely covered by numerous stars of the Grand Dao.
