The nine streaks of celestial gases gathered in front of Lin Feng in the main pavilion. As the nine streaks of gases were added onto his body, it seemed as if he had a layer of nine-colored glow around him.
He clasped his palm and conjured a spell. After that, he stepped back and the coated nine-colored glow on him was removed.
But a dim projection of himself was still left over at the original spot. This projection intersected with the glow and they developed a tendency to combine together.
This projection was dim and could not be seen clearly. It could only be subtly seen that it had an appearance similar to Lin Feng’s actual self.
As the eyes of the projection shut, it maintained a calm expression and stood where he was quietly as his palms were clasped together. The nine streaks of celestial gases revolved around him continuously and eventually converted into a streak of nine-colored divine light.
This was the special Nine Energies True Sky Divine Light of the Penglai Celestial Mountain.
This divine light combined with the projection of Lin Feng, causing the projection to become more and more cultivated.
The nine streaks of celestial gases on the Penglai Celestial Mountain gathered towards this projection continuously, as if they were nine huge chains of locks that were tied around the projection. At the same time, they were like nine paths that connected to the Heavens and Earth.
Lin Feng sat cross-legged and as he transformed his spells, streaks and streaks of mana were shot into that projection.
The height of the projection grew significantly and reached almost 10 feet rapidly. The rate of increase soon slowed down, but there was still an increase.
“I used the nine streaks of true energies that were developed from the essence of the Heavens and Earth on the Penglai Celestial Mountain to cultivate this avatar.” Lin Feng thought, “If this is similar to what I expected, it means that what I deduced earlier was accurate.”
But cultivating this avatar needed a longer time and could not be completed so soon. Fortunately, Lin Feng was not pressed for time.
In the process of cultivating this avatar, his cultivation would be boosted significantly too.
The cultivation of this avatar would occur mainly on the Penglai Celestial Mountain. When it was on the right track, Lin Feng could leave the Penglai Celestial Mountain for a period of time without disrupting this cultivation.
After Big Luo ended his own cultivation, he looked at the projection of Lin Feng curiously, “Master Lin, this is…”
Lin Feng smiled, “This is an avatar that I cultivated using the nine streaks of celestial gases from the Penglai Celestial Mountain. But I’m still in the process of understand it, thus there are things which are still incomplete.”
He looked at Big Luo and smiled, “When this is over, I shall pass it to you. You can use the same method to cultivate an avatar. This method should not just be restricted to your current condition, without a true body. Cultivating such an avatar will make it simpler for you to move around.”
Big Luo replied embarrassedly, “Master Lin, don’t joke around. I am fine how I am now.”
“Using your demonic powers to figure this thing out, it will be good for your cultivation too.” Lin Feng laughed as he shook his head. He then turned his attention back to the projection right in front of him.
Although they were halfway between a Master and disciple now, their relationship did not seem to be any different from that between a true Master and disciple.
Big Luo remained seated on the ground and unleashed a streak of his demonic mana that revolved around Lin Feng’s avatar. He was trying to sense this avatar.
After a brief moment, he revealed a shocked look. He shut his eyes decisively and tried to comprehend things to the best of his ability.
As time passed, Lin Feng’s projection had reached above 30 feet. Lin Feng smiled and combined the spells on his hands before pushing forward.
The projection jerked a little before settling down again. Whereas Lin Feng’s actual body stood up.
“Master Lin, are you about to leave?” Big Luo opened his eyes and looked at Lin Feng. Lin Feng nodded his head, “You will only need slight powers to effect the rest of the changes. When this avatar reaches 90 feet, I will come back to cultivate it once more.”
He turned to the exit of the pavilion and walked out, “Just continue to work hard from now on.”
As he reached the exit, he stopped and turned to look at Big Luo. Then, he said softly, “The opportunity may arise any moment. When it appears, you need to have enough confidence to grab hold of it.”
Big Luo took in a deep breath and replied, “I understand. Master Lin, please do not be worried.”
Lin Feng exited the pavilion and walked in void space. As he peered down at the Penglai Celestial Mountain, he saw nine streaks of formless gases gathering within the pavilion of the mountain. And above the pavilion, there was a subtle nine-colored divine light that formed a connection between the Heavens and Earth.
“Everything in this world is indeed filled with secrets.” Lin Feng grinned, “The more you know, the stronger you will feel about this.”
He then turned and left, traversing within the Ying Sea.
After moving through an unknown distance, a huge celestial mountain appeared in front of Lin Feng. In the twisted space around the mountain, there seemed to be countless, transparent jade pieces that were floating. They were extremely bright and smooth.
Each of these jade pieces were very huge and were rectangular in shape. As they stacked together and opened up, they engulfed the celestial mountain in a ball shape.
Lin Feng pointed with his finger and the jade pieces started to shift. They formed an opening that was like a gate that allowed Lin Feng to enter.
This was the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
As compared to the hidden Penglai Celestial Mountain, everyone knew that the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain landed in Lin Feng’s hands. Some of the resources produced in the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain were the same as those from the Celestial Wonders World. They became powerful chips in Lin Feng’s hands. On many occasions, they were even influential than Lin Feng’s own powers.
And among them, a huge amount of resources was invested into the use of the Celestial Sect of Wonders. This had the effect of increasing the powers of the sect.
Among the Three Mountains of the Ying Sea, there were the most illusory realms in the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain. Besides being a resource-rich area, the mountain was also the most important venue for the disciples of the Celestial Sect to train.
The illusory realms over here were very useful in the strengthening of the disciples of the Celestial Sect.
As Lin Feng’s gaze scanned the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain, it flashed and a few streaks of flowing light shot out from the mountain. They then landed in front of Lin Feng.
He rolled his sleeves and picked them up. After that, they landed beside a spring.
This was naturally the Jade Nectar Spring on the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain, which served to nourish magic treasures. Right now, inside the spring, there were two huge, black figures.
“According to normal standards, this is already sufficient.” Lin Feng laughed as he shook his head, “But waiting a while longer will be fine too.”
As he finished saying, he turned around and left the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain.
Lin Feng left the Ying Sea and travelled above the East Sea. He turned his attention to the northeast direction. Over there, it was another passageway between the Divine Lands and Barren Expanses, “Time waits for no man. I wonder what will cause the War of the two Worlds this time?”
He turned to the west now and walked across the huge sea. He then landed on the ground again, travelling across the territories of the Great Zhou Empire before arriving at the old site of the Great Thunderclap Temple.
Looking at the debris, Lin Feng maintained his indifference, “Emperor Ru, you managed to increase your powers after comprehending the way of karma and became a Buddha on your own. You then created the Great Thunderclap Temple. You are indeed a rare talent in your era.”
“To you, can the countless believers of Buddhism and your own Buddhist mantras survive the changes of nature?”
Lin Feng shook his head and he looked away towards the clear sky in the southeast direction. He then said quietly, “I still have things that I’m busy with. I shall not go over to Comrade Liang’s place to visit now. I apologize for that.”
The sky in the southeast direction remained empty, but a voice resonated, “Your words are too serious. The Great Zhou Empire and I will always welcome you here.”
Lin Feng nodded his head, “Comrade Liang, you are too kind.”
After he finished speaking, he placed his hands behind his back and walked forward, before disappearing into void space and continued towards the west.
In the capital of the Great Zhou Empire, Tianjing, Liang Pan was sitting on the dragon throne in the main palace. He rubbed his fingers on the handles of the throne lightly and did not speak for quite some time.
All these years, the Great Zhou Empire became more and more low-profile compared to the rapid expansion it made previously. The empire was no longer as dominant as before.
To say that they were tied, it might sound very exaggerated. But undoubtedly, they acted with more caution. Now that they were facing the Celestial Sect of Wonders, they had no choice but to do so.
It was not possible for them to give in all the way, which would have affected the cohesion and the morale of the people in the Great Zhou Empire. However, the style of the empire had become more conservative.
Against the Great Qin Empire and other powers, the Great Zhou Empire remained hard-headed. They only reduced the pace of their expansion, and became from offensive to defensive.
Over the years, they had been planning carefully. Slowly, the Great Zhou Empire was stabilizing itself.
But till now, the Great Zhou Empire maintained its restraint when dealing with external powers.
However, this did not signify that they were completely uninterested in rising further. They were just biding their time to ascend again.
“The next War of the two Worlds will be a good chance. No one can control anything in the world.” Liang Pan looked far, “If I don’t grab the opportunity during the War of the two Worlds, I can only wait till the Celestial Sect of Wonders and Great Void Sect clash.”
“But if I am unable to even take these two chances, it will be very worrying.”
A light projection surfaced in front of him. In this projection, here was a middle-aged man who wore a golden crown and looked charming who sat cross-legged. He was Zhu Hongwu, the Marquis of Xuanji of the Great Zhou Empire.
Zhu Hongwu opened his eyes, which flashed with radiances. He said calmly, “There is bound to be a battle between the Celestial Sect of Wonders and Great Void Sect.”
Liang Pan replied, “When the opportunity arises, I must be capable of grabbing hold of it. In the past, I wished for the war to come later, so that the Great Zhou can prepare. The opportunity would have been greater in this way.”
“But now, I hope that the War of the Two Worlds will come sooner, otherwise our opponents will rise faster than us. Only this kind of uncontrollable situation will be able to bring about opportunity.” Liang Pan remained calm, “This is sad and humiliating, but it’s a truth we have to face and accept.”
Zhu Hongwu lowered his head and said, “I am guilty.”
Liang Pan shook his head, “It’s not your fault, you don’t have to blame yourself. But you need to quicken your pace to reach the Immortal Soul Third Level. The stronger we are, the more confident we will be able of grabbing the opportunity when it arises.”
Zhu Hongwu answered, “Your Majesty, I will reach the Immortal Soul Third Level soon.”
