Chapter 858: Countless Catastrophes in the Heavens and Earth, But I Shall Be the One Who Bears the Perdition!
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
As his relatives were facing danger and his sect was undergoing a crisis, Wang Lin was slowly figuring out the true meaning of the Great Dao. He felt that the fog in front of his eyes was slowly disappearing and that he was only one step away from achieving greatness.
Wang Lin remained calm and cleared his mind, “There’s only one word to describe the overcoming of this barrier – Unbelievable!”
The fourth demonic door closed suddenly and the view inside this world started to reverse. The lines which extended previously started to go back to their original point, all the way till the first light spot.
In the world, when one made a choice, he would embark on one path and reach one destination. The starting point was the cause while the destination was the effect. When there’s a cause, there would be an effect. When something started, it would change a lot along the way. When it stopped, there would be an end.
The past shapes the future. The future effect could be traced back to an original cause.
The last spell of Wang Lin’s Four Appearances Boundary Spell, the Cause and Effect World!
After encountering such a concept, the fog in front of Wang Lin had cleared out entirely. The door to the Immortal Soul was never so clear to him before.
An image flashed across Wang Lin’s mind. While it seemed far from him, it was extremely clear.
When he was young, his talent was not obvious and he could not pass the test to enter the Hengyue Faction.
When he obtained the Pearl of Styx, he came under Lin Feng.
He was always the slowest among the others in terms of cultivation. Fortunately, Lin Feng never gave up on him and kept on guiding him patiently. Lin Feng searched for all types of resources for him, which allowed him to progress rapidly.
When he first formed the Aurous Core, he returned to his hometown and spent time with his parents.
When cultivators from the Hall of the Dead attacked, he was stranded in the Void Battleground as he fought them to protect his family. His life hung on a thread.
After a period of bitterness, he finally became the first under Lin Feng to form the Nascent Soul, shocking everyone.
Everything boiled down to three things.
Family, Master and the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
And finally, these three things gathered to form the purest intention.
“Immortal Soul! Immortal Soul! Immortal Soul!”
After cultivating for so long, the final will that rose in his mind beckoned for Wang Lin to push open the door to the Immortal Soul.
Form the Immortal Soul to protect his family, glory of the sect and his fellow sect members!
This was something that he never repeated through his mouth, but it was the brightest and warmest flame that burned in his cold and lonely heart.
It was just like his old life, where he alternated between black and white – loneliness, despair, and sorrow dominated, but hope existed too.
When he was at the lowest point of his life and his future seemed bleak, he met his benefactor.
He cultivated slowly. Even in the face of difficulties, his Master never left him. His fellow sect members treated him equally, without discrimination or pity towards him. They went through tough times and crises together too.
As powerful enemies attacked, his clan members and parents were in danger. He fought hard to resist the enemies. Although he was stuck in void space, his closed ones were kept safe.
In all the battles he fought, he stood tall. In every challenge he faced, he remained high-spirited. Every time he fell, he got back up with even more verve.
He was mentally strong. He did not cry, did not beg, did not compromise, did not give up, turned the impossible to possible and never backed down.
To prevent the world in his heart from turning black and white, even if he descended into darkness and even if he had to burn in darkness by himself, he was willing to do so!
Wang Lin felt as if he was a fire in the darkness. This fire burnt intensely in the darkness. While time seemed to pass in an instant, it also seemed to drag forever. The door in front of him opened suddenly!
His Nascent Soul converted into a streak of flowing light and burst into his Cosmic Form.
His Cosmic Form combined with his Nascent Soul and rushed past the door.
After passing through the door, the Cosmic Form of Wang Lin collapsed, converting into talismanic seeds. These seeds received the countless principles of the Great Dao, nourishing themselves as they grew in size. After that, they converted to form a huge Taiji Diagram.
On this Taiji Diagram, there were many light projections flashing. At the end of a yellowish-black path, a dim and long river flowed. Above the long river, there was an ancient, black stone bridge. The bridge led to a pavilion hall the size of a city on one side.
Inside that majestic, black pavilion, something seemed to be present. But right now, it was only an illusory light projection, that flashed for a moment before disappearing.
The light projection converted into a huge Netherworld, and this Taiji Diagram infused this Netherworld inside it.
A deep and peaceful singing voice rang from this Netherworld Taiji Diagram.
“Boundless catastrophes in the Heavens and Earth, but I shall be the one who bears the perdition!”
Amidst the singing voice, the Netherworld Taiji Diagram spun and caused the Road to River Styx, River of Forgetfulness, Narakade Bridge and Yama Imperial Pavilion to be dragged inside. As the Taiji Diagram burst out of the Pearl of Styx, the Pearl of Styx and the Heavenly Gods-Sealing Banner were also dragged within it.
In the next moment, the Netherworld Taiji Diagram re-converted to the appearance of Wang Lin. As his white hair flowed, the Taiji Diagram on his forehead flashed before disappearing.
The fourth demonic door above his head opened and revealed the Cause and Effect World. As the door opened, it shut almost instantly. The powers of karma around him started to break down.
It’s not that Wang Lin removed all his karma. It’s that he had understood the concept of cause, effect and karma right now, thus his karma couldn’t be easily evoked from outside his body.
At the same time, the River Styx Primordial Water converted into a long river and blocked out the Red Lotus Fire. At this moment, red lotus flowers started to bloom above the dim-yellow river water. Both parties seemed to achieve a miraculous balance.
“The powers of Samsara of the Samsara Sect are indeed special. I can use them as a reference in the future during my cultivation.”
Wang Lin remained calm. As he jumped, he had already exited the black hole of the Six Paths of Samsara!
The third disciple under Lin Feng to form the Immortal Soul, Wang Lin!
Even Jie Luoshi, Shao Dongtian and the rest were shocked as they saw this scene, “Is it because of our attack that made it possible for them to form the Immortal Soul, or is it because of something else?”
Shi Tianfang used the Six Paths of Samsara to engulf both Wang Lin and the Ice Elder. While the Ice Elder perished, Wang Lin managed to break free from it.
Wang Lin’s expression turned cold as he looked at Shi Tianfang. He paused for a while and the Narakade Bridge appeared, lifting him up. He attacked Shi Tianfang after that!
Shi Tianfang was stunned and creased his brows. He pointed his finger at Wang Lin. Wherever his powers crossed, life was created and the Heavens and Earth opened. But after life was created, destruction ensured and all life walked towards their end.
This was the Grand Brahma Finger of the Samsara Sect.
The Narakade Bridge under Wang Lin rose and the River Styx Primordial Water from the River of Forgetfulness perfused the Narakade Bridge.
The ancient aura exuded from the bridge became even thicker and revealed a strong power concept that could penetrate the Heavens and Earth.
The huge bridge transcended boundless void space and converted into a black line, clashing with the finger of Shi Tianfang.
Amidst a boom, the Narakade Bridge was forced backward and Shi Tianfang was pushed back too.
Shi Tianfang turned even more serious and stared at Wang Lin, thinking, “Indeed, his powers are weirdly similar to the Samsara Sect. While they seem to be on the same track, they subtly contain the power of curbing the mantras and spells of the Samsara Sect.”
The same power concept could exist in different types of mantras. The Scripture of the Great Heaven-Illuminating Sun and the Spell of the Grand Sun Primordial Flame both controlled the Grand Sun Primordial Fire.
The understanding of different types of mantra towards a certain power concept varied naturally, but these mantras still originate from the same power concept.
Previously, after witnessing the powers of Xiao Yan and Shi Tianhao, Shi Tianfang was already shocked. He did not expect the Immediate Disciples of Lin Feng to be so powerful. Even though they were only in the Immortal Soul First Level, they did not seem to be on the back foot against him and Shao Dongtian, who were both in the Immortal Soul Third Level.
Right now, as he saw Wang Lin, he knew that Wang Lin would be a formidable opponent despite his lower cultivation.
Shi Tianfang’s powers surged around him and he revealed the Dao Fruit of the Six Paths of Samsara once again. The six areas of the wheel started to shine brightly with colors. The area that represented the Path of Humanity shone the brightest at this point and the carving on it changed continuously, acting out the countless changes in life.
Balls and balls or radiance expanded and wanted to drag Wang Lin within.
Shi Tianfang was experienced in battling. As he saw Wang Lin’s mantras, he knew that the mantras of the Path of the Heaven-Born and Path of Asura were unable to take much effect against him. The mantras of the Path of Hungry Ghoul and Path of Hell would be useless, whereas that of the Path of Humanity and Path of Beasts were worth trying.
The radiance expanded and converted into a human world, engulfing Wang Lin. The view that appeared in front of him was the small village he lived in when he was young. While the land was barren, there were still a few farms in this village.
Wang Lin’s gaze was calm and peaceful. As he stood on the Narakade Bridge, he seemed like a normal person. His aura and powers were retracted. As he walked, everything seemed to be simple and pure. While he enjoyed this view, he was not intoxicated by it. He remained clear-minded still.
As Shi Tianfang saw this, he creased his brows. He immediately knew that the Path of Humanity was useless against Wang Lin. The Dao Fruit of the Six Paths of Samsara was summoned again and the purplish area representing the Path of Beast started to shine with a radiance. It wanted to drag Wang Lin within. Countless beasts came leaping towards Wang Lin.
Wang Lin continued to walk slowly and his expression did not seem to change. He appeared as an ordinary person as usual, but the aura of destruction had already been exuded from his body. This aura violated space and converted into a Yellow Springs World.
As the dim-yellow Yellow Springs World expanded, it encountered the Path of Beast of Shi Tianfang and degraded it.
The beasts that were inside this Yellow Springs World converted into pale-white ones. Their lives were taken away and only skeletons remained.
The Path of the Beasts was halfway degraded by the Yellow Springs World, as more and more beasts were killed in the process.
In the past, Wang Lin would turn merciless as he exhibited the Destructive Stage of River Styx.
But now, his manner and temperament did not seem to change as he exhibited the Destructive Stage of River Styx.
He did not seem frightening as he walked but appeared to be leisurely. But the more he was like that, the more terrifying he seemed to be to Shi Tianfang.
The Six Paths of Samsara kept on revolving. The mysterious and weird powers of Samsara transcended the Destructive Stage of the River of Styx and Wang Lin’s own powers, hoping to guide the powers of karma out from his body.
Wang Lin remained calm and changed his form, revealing the Netherworld Taiji Diagram. As the Cause and Effect World was unleashed and the fourth demonic door was opened, the door closed suddenly and cause & effect reversed. This prevented the powers of karma from being summoned.
At the same time, the Yellow Springs World jerked a little before collapsing towards its center.
As if the luminaries were being wiped out, the destruction happened at the center of the world.
Eventually, a black ball was formed, which floated above the Netherworld Taiji Diagram.
