The Zixiao Palace was once a holy land for all Tao pursuers in Untainted Land. Ancestor Hongjun taught and preached there three times, which were the foundations for the prosperous Way of Celestial Immortality in Untainted Land. Furthermore, since Hongjun combined his body with the Tao, the Zixiao Palace disappeared in Untainted Land. If there were no big event, he would not appear. At the moment, the Zixiao Palace appeared in the Chaos with supernatural power fluctuating inside it, in which there seemed to be some people fighting in magic arts.
After many years, Minghe saw the Zixiao Palace again, but suddenly, he made an extremely surprising discovery. It was not only a palace, but a Primordial Supreme Treasure of the Highest Grade. Before, he had not discovered it. However, there now seemed to be some dramatic changes in the Zixiao Palace. Hence, the vital force of the Zixiao Palace was exposed to Minghe as well.
Looking at the Zixiao Palace, Minghe's face turned somewhat grave. Although Primordial Supreme Treasures of the Highest Grade were rare and their power was strong, Minghe did not fear them. The problem was that the Zixiao Palace of Hongjun was not just a powerful Primordial Supreme Treasure, but Minghe could also feel the vital force of the 3,000 Great Ways above it that were similar to the Wheel of Law caused by the combination of Hongjun's body with the Tao.
Minghe curled up the corners of his mouth and showed a weird smile. He was not the only one who had realized that. This Primordial Supreme Treasure, refined for Heaven and Earth Taoist in Treasures World, was Mid Grade in the beginning. But it had been upgraded to Top Grade. That Primordial Supreme Treasure, modeled on the Wheel of Law in the Way of Heaven when Minghe combined his body with the Tao, represented the Wheel of Law in the Way of Heaven in the World of Heaven and Earth.
When the Wheel of Law in the Way of Heaven had been refined, Minghe gave it to Heaven and Earth Taoist, who used the Power of the Divine Law from the World of Heaven and Earth to cultivate it to integrate it with the Way of Heaven in the World of Heaven and Earth. Later, the Wheel of Law in the Way of Heaven succeeded in being upgraded to Top Grade. With the growth of the World of Heaven and Earth, the strength of the Wheel of Law in the Way of Heaven also grew.
Seeing what Hongjun had done, Minghe felt that he was evenly matched with him. Minghe used the World of Heaven and Earth to shape the Wheel of Law in the Way of Heaven while Hongjun combined his body with the Way of Heaven to replicate it in his Zixiao Palace. However, from the vital force of the Zixiao Palace, the replication seemed to be have not been successful. Otherwise, the vital force of the Zixiao Palace would have been more terrifying with the strong Way of Heaven in Untainted Land.
At the moment, Hongjun displayed an extremely grave complexion in the Zixiao Palace. He held the Jade Butterfly of Fate, with all the supernatural power in his body surging up. It seemed that he was resisting something. A strong power fell on his head from the sky that seemed to suppress Hongjun. Confronting such suppression, Hongjun shed a few drops of cold sweat.
Confronted with this strong suppression, Hongjun naturally knew where the strength was from—the Way of Heaven. With his body being combined with the Way of Heaven for many years, Hongjun naturally knew how strong the Way of Heaven was. It was because of this that Hongjun was reduced to being suppressed. All of this was certainly rooted in Minghe. And upon thinking of him, Hongjun displayed a hint of hatred.
Hongjun had fought with Luohou before. Others thought that he had defeated Luohou, but what they did not know was that Hongjun had injured his Foundation and owed immense Karma after winning the battle. Due to that, he had to choose to become a Sage. Otherwise, he would be on the Way of Origin or a Rakshasa, just like Minghe.
After becoming a Sage, Hongjun had a new plan. Since there was no way out, what he could do was go ahead. He planned to combine his body with the Tao. It would cause him to lose freedom temporarily, however, if he planned it well, gradually weakened the power of the Way of Heaven, and then swallowed the Way of Heaven all at once, he could finally step into the realm of the Way of Heaven, which was the Golden Immortal of Fate of the Origin.
Unfortunately, one's predictions sometimes did not accord with the final results. Hongjun's plan was completely destroyed by Minghe. First, Minghe and Evil Separation Red Lotus Taoist had actualized the Realm of the Origin, then Houtu became a Sage, which was followed by the mighty rise of the Human Tribe. Finally, the Good Separation and Selfcentric Separation of Minghe had actualized one after another. In this case, the Way of Heaven was stronger and it heavily suppressed Hongjun. Given that there were no malicious thoughts on the Wu-killing Sword, there was no opportunity at all for Hongjun to be separated from the Way of Heaven.
It took some effort to acquire the heaven-sent opportunity of the damage of the Way of Heaven and the breaking of Untainted Land. But Hongjun suddenly found that even if the Way of Heaven was damaged, its power was unmatched. Now, Hongjun certainly had his own decision, which was to break away from the Way of Heaven. Once he missed that chance, perhaps he could only be a puppet of the Way of Heaven for the rest of his life.
Although the Way of Heaven was a collection of rules, it was clear about what was beneficial for itself. It could get rid of one latent danger if Hongjun was away from the Way of Heaven. Meanwhile, it would also bring great damage to him, which was not what the Way of Heaven was willing to see. Hence, the Way of Heaven directly chose to suppress Hongjun without paying attention to repairing Untainted Land.
Confronted with the strong Way of Heaven, Hongjun displayed a sort of determination. Biting his teeth, he made a quick decision. He threw the Jade Butterfly of Fate into the sky, saying with hatred, "Explode!" The Jade Butterfly of Fate instantly exploded, radiating out boundless light to integrate into the Zixiao Palace. With the strong power from the explosion of the Jade Butterfly of Fate, Hongjun immediately got rid of the great suppression from the Way of Heaven.
In the meantime in Untainted Land, all the Sages, who were trying to repair the broken Untainted Land, turned pale. The power of the Way of Heaven that they were utilizing had suddenly disappeared, certainly making it hard for all the Sages to stabilize Untainted Land using their own supernatural powers alone. The breaking of Untainted Land accelerated in the blink of an eye.
As all the Sages were confused, a palace came down from Heaven. All the Sages and all the living beings of Untainted Land were startled to see it. Was not it Hongjun's Zixiao Palace? Why would it suddenly appear in Untainted Land? When they were still confused, the door of the palace opened and one person came out of it. It was Hongjun as they had expected to see, but his appearance was somewhat strange.
Similar to all the Sages, Hongjun seemed to be injured and had a pale countenance. After going out of the Zixiao Palace, Hongjun reached out his hands and the Zixiao Palace shrank at once and then finally dropped into his hands. Putting the Zixiao Palace away, he looked at all the Sages, who were gazing at him. But he ignored all of them and just looked at Minghe, who was swallowing the Air of Destruction. Meanwhile, he displayed a sort of hatred.
Hongjun was looking at Minghe and Minghe was looking at Hongjun as well. After feeling the vital force of Hongjun, Minghe suddenly understood why the Way of Heaven and Hongjun had not appeared before. The reason was that the Way of Heaven had been impeded by Hongjun. He was no longer just the one combining with the Tao, or even no longer a Sage, but a Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of the Origin.
Minghe emphasized internal and external cultivation. His body was on the Way of Divine Beings while his Original Spirit was on the Way of the Origin. His Original Spirit was already at the Secondary Stage of the Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of the Origin, not far away from the Late Stage. As for the Real Body of the Rakshasa, it could equal the Late Stage of the Origin after absorbing the Hong Meng Immortal Qi from the breaking of Untainted Land. And when it was integrated into one, it could fight against the Peak of the Origin.
Minghe's face turned somewhat grave when he felt the vital force of the Origin from the body of Hongjun. It was a kind of vital force at the Peak of the Origin. Although Hongjun was injured, he was at the Peak of the Origin so Minghe had to be cautious of him. Moreover, perhaps he was not just at the Peak of the Origin after such a long time in combination with the Tao.
Minghe had noticed the changes of Hongjun, so did all the Sages. Laozi went forward to salute him and said, "Teacher, you... What's up?" The Zenith Heaven Golden Immortal of the Origin? Hongjun had combined his body with the Tao, but he suddenly appeared before them differently. They certainly were very startled to see that. Could it be that some accidents had happened in the Way of Heaven?
Without saying a word, Hongjun saw a strong power befall between Heaven and Earth. It was the Way of the Tao, which began to repair Untainted Land in the end, making all the Sages relax. All were amazed to feel the strong Way of Heaven, which should stabilize the broken Untainted Land immediately. Untainted Land no longer had any signs of expansion or breaking.
All the Sages felt strange confronting such a strong power. Before this, they all had thought that those who were inferior to Sages were nonentities. However, in front of the Way of Heaven, even the Sages thought that they were insignificant. All those who were inferior to Sages were nonentities. However, few knew that all the Sages were nonentities under the Way of Heaven.
At that time, all the Sages sighed with all sorts of feelings. Those who had strong powers had their own tragedies as well. Faced with such a situation, all the Sages had their own thoughts. When they only had ideas, someone had already taken action. Besides, there was another person that had taken measures. Nevertheless, that target was somewhat beyond the expectations of everyone.
