Chapter 476: It’s Today!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Lin Feng swallowed the essence of the entire Cloud Forest Tree. The spiritual energy filled the Nascent Soul and Cosmic Form of Lin Feng in an instant.
The Cloud Forest Tree was only inferior to some of the spiritual trees among the Four Spiritual Species. These spiritual trees could be 10,000 years old and contained spiritual energy that would be difficult even for an Immortal Soul Stage Elder to absorb.
Lin Feng’s Nascent Soul became unstable under the attack of the huge amount of spiritual energy.
At this moment, the eight-limbed Cosmic Form started to form mana prints. Every two limbs formed one mana print.
“Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script. Earth. Heaven-Bearing Print!”
Four Heaven-Bearing Prints erected and a repressive power concept started to expand, stabilizing Lin Feng’s Nascent Soul.
As Lin Feng’s Nascent Soul stabilized, it also formed a Heaven-Bearing Print. As it sat on its knees, it absorbed and cultivated the essence of the Cloud Forest Tree.
During the process of cultivation, time was forgotten and Lin Feng’s Nascent Soul grew bigger and stronger as time passed. From the 11 or 12 years old appearance, it started to develop a 15 or 16 years old appearance.
From an external perspective, the peak state of the Nascent Soul should have an appearance that resembled a 15 or 16 years old teenager.
When Lin Feng’s Nascent Soul grew to its extreme, he started to summon his Cosmic Form to absorb the remaining essence from the Cloud Forest Tree.
His Cosmic Form was already very powerful, thus when it cultivated and strengthened, it naturally used up more resources and energy than the Cosmic Form of others.
Fortunately, Mount Yujing was filled with spiritual energy. Furthermore, it was supplemented by the Cloud Forest Tree essence, allowing Lin Feng’s cultivation to be done in half the effort and done rapidly.
The backbone of his Cosmic Form was created from the mountain rocks of Mount Yujing, the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree and the Purple Clouds. Whereas the will of it naturally belonged to Lin Feng.
When Lin Feng summoned his Cosmic Form to the extreme, the power concept within it was very similar to the past where he controlled Mount Yujing. Although it was much weaker now, it could still be termed as a smaller-sized Mount Yujing.
Lin Feng’s mind wavered and his Cosmic Form fled into space. As it travelled the skies, its entire body was flashing with rainbow light, cutting through the space-time turbulence.
The eight limbs danced and as Lin Feng’s Cosmic Form moved, it entered different planes in time and space.
The four faces sung at the same time and Purple Clouds filled the skies. Within the vast Purple Clouds, countless images appeared, of the Heavens and Earth, of pavilions, mountains, water bodies, people, animals and all other matter.
In the next moment, Lin Feng’s cosmic form extended its eight limbs in all directions. As the limbs formed a fist, the entire space was destroyed, converting into moving Earth, Water, Fire and Wind. As they moved, they covered the entire space in chaos.
Lin Feng’s mind wavered again and the Cosmic Form had already been retracted back.
“My Cosmic Form is strong enough to tear apart the Immortal Soul Avatar of a normal cultivator.” Lin Feng remained peaceful and was not proud. He was not being arrogant as he only pointed out the basic judgment based on what he saw.
“However, it’s still not enough!”
With Lin Feng’s accumulation and cultivation, jumping from the Intermediate Stage to the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage was not difficult. As to why he had never broken through it, that was because he never thought that it was necessary.
The Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage was superior to the Intermediate Stage because of the Cosmic Form. And Lin Feng felt that it was inconvenient for him to reveal his Cosmic Form to battle his opponents.
That was why from the start, his only goal was only one thing.
Just directly reach the realm of the Immortal Soul Stage.
Lin Feng had already swallowed the Trāyastriṃśa Elixir of Creation. He tapped on the power of the elixir and the will of Great Tao gathered around him, supporting him.
The gaze of his Nascent Soul flashed with radiance and each pupil was filled with black and white.
Lin Feng spat and swallowed a huge amount of spiritual energy. His Nascent Soul caused a lot of chaos.
At this point, he felt a door looming over him. It was as heavy as mountain and felt close, but seemed far away.
If he overcame this barrier, he would no longer have any obstacles stopping him. The Heavens and Earth would never be the same and he would strip his ordinary self and become special!
The will of Great Tao was like an avenue that brought Lin Feng to this door.
Lin Feng tried to push the door. The door creaked a little but did not opened.
He was only one door away from the Immortal Soul Stage. But it seemed so near yet so far. Lin Feng was already standing in front of the door, but he lacked the last step.
This step seemed as if it could not be taken.
Lin Feng raised his brows, “Don’t tell me that I am too anxious? After breaking into the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage, before my foundation is stable, I have tried to enter the Immortal Soul Stage?”
Why was it so difficult to break into the Immortal Soul Stage?
Without the Immortal Soul, life had an end. Even if one led a peaceful life, when the day comes, they would return to the ground again.
At the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage, the Cosmic Form dominated, but one could only live 60 cycles of 60 years, a total of 3600 years of longevity. It was a long life, but life would still end.
Only by reaching the Immortal Soul Stage could one remain alive like the Heavens and Earth. If the Heavens and Earth were not destroyed, one could live forever.
Since immemorial, many people were stuck below the realm of the Immortal Soul Stage. They could only watch as they walked towards the end of life.
In terms of probability, it was the most difficult to form the Immortal Soul from the Nascent Soul. There was nothing compared to it.
After Lin Feng’s cultivation grew more powerful, he started to interact with Immortal Soul Stage cultivators. But in fact, until now, as he looked back, there were very little people who could reach the realm of the Immortal Soul Stage.
Even in the great sects within the Divine Lands, including the Sword of Radiance Sect, Huo Clan, Yu Clan, Intense Flaming Sword Sect and the Aeolus Sect, they only had one Immortal Soul Stage Elder holding the fort.
The Sun Moon Sword Sect cultivated in sword pairings. Only the leader of the sect, the Sun Radiance Swordmaster operated on his alone. All these years, he had been waiting for the appearance of his Corona Swordmaster. But till now, he’s still alone.
The arch-enemies, the Heaven Lake Sect and the Royal House of the Northern Tribes, claimed to dominate the Northern Realms. In the game between the Great Zhou Empire and the Great Qin Empire, these two dominant parties took on very important roles and their loyalties were desired.
There were three Immortal Soul Stage Elders in the Heaven Lake Sect, Cao Wei and the Two Elders of Ice and Fire.
The Immortal Soul Stage Elder of the Royal House of the Northern Tribes were the Lord of the Royal House, Prince Xian of the Left, Prince Xian of the Right and the Priest of the Royal House. There were four in total. But as Prince Xian of the Left perished, there were only three left.
Among these great powers, there were also outstanding talents. But there were only a few of them who were in the Immortal Soul Stage. It was not that they did not desire more Immortal Soul Stage cultivators, but it was that forming the Immortal Soul was very difficult.
For the Sun Radiance Swordmaster, Supreme Radiance Swordmaster, Huo Xiu, Yu Xintao, Cao Wei and the other Immortal Soul Stage Elders, in their long lives, they had already witnessed the death of their disciples countless times.
They watched helplessly as their disciples and descendants passed away. After that, they thought of ways and methods to nurture a new generation of talents, hoping that someone would make it out.
The Great Void Sect, Mount Shu Sword Sect, Great Zhou Empire and the Great Qin Empire were recognized as the four great powers because they had many Immortal Soul Stage Elders.
There was great internal strife within the Samsara Sect, causing the Samsara Sect to be embroiled in huge internal conflicts. But no one dared to underestimate them. That was because there was one Immortal Soul Stage Elder in each of the Six Paths.
Why was the Great Void Sect recognized as the first Holy Ground of the human clan?
Even though the most of their efforts were used to monitor the movements of the demonic clan in the Barren Expanses, no one dared to mess with them.
There was only one reason. That was because they were strong enough, as they had the most number of Immortal Soul Stage cultivators in the Grand Celestial World.
The Great Void Sect’s <> had been touted as the mantra that was closest to the origins of the Great Tao in the human world. There were many talents in the Great Void Sect and it had always been claimed as the Talent Gathering Camp. Even so, there were many of these Great Void Sect successors who failed to overcome the last step to the Immortal Soul Stage.
And within these group of successors were people once touted to leave their name in history, future sect pillars and the masters of fate.
Not mentioning others, the leaders of the fourth-generation Great Void Sect disciples dominated in the world of cultivation, but besides Lin Daohan who formed the Immortal Soul on Mount Baiyun, there were 3 others whose roads to the Immortal Soul were not smooth.
Pang Jie was unsuccessful outside of Shazhou County and his reputation went down the gutter. Now, he’s still at Mount Baiyun trying to reach the Immortal Soul Stage.
Yan Mingyue almost lost her life as she challenged Long Ye. But she finally managed to form the Immortal Soul.
Meng Bingyun was the saddest among the three of them. Even till her death day, she had not promoted to the Immortal Soul Stage.
This was the Immortal Soul Stage. The difficulty of reaching it was much higher than other barriers a cultivator faced before.
But all these did not make Lin Feng depressed or give up. He was extremely calm, “Have I lost confidence in myself? No, on the contrary, my accumulation is sufficient. Today is the day I form the Immortal Soul!”
At this moment, Lin Feng’s heart was only clear of what he had to do. There were no negative repercussions and no wild thoughts in his mind.
The Great Void Sect, Mount Shu, Great Zhou Empire, Great Qin Empire, Heaven Lake Sect, Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, Golden Roc Grand Sage and others were all in his mind.
Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin, Shi Tianhao, Yue Hongyan, Yang Qing, Tuntun, Miao Shihao, Kang Nanhua, Jieyu and the rest disappeared from his mind.
Even the system, whatever mission, whatever reward, he forgot all about them.
His entire focus was placed on reaching the peak and achieving his goal.
In his mind, there was only the understanding of the destiny of the universe and the way of the Heavens and Earth. These consolidated to form a resilient determination in Lin Feng’s mind.
Amidst the booming sound, Lin Feng pushed open the closed door in his mind.
His Nascent Soul was converted into a streak of radiance and dashed into the Cosmic Form. It was as if his soul had a shell. His Nascent Soul and Cosmic Form combined and broke through that door.
As he crossed the illusory door, Lin Feng’s Cosmic Form revealed a satisfied smile on its four faces.
Following that, the Cosmic Form collapsed!
