Chapter 18 - 18 : Breakthrough To Spirit Establishment
As soon as he read this book, Long Chen was amazed.
After reading the book, he found out that written inside it was a cultivation technique. Long Chen could feel that there was something special about it.
"Although I do not know much about cultivation techniques other than the ones that I read in the Long clan, I can feel that this one is pretty extraordinary compared to our Clan's cultivation technique!" Long Chen muttered to himself.
Although there was nothing written on the cover, Long Chen had already seen this red-robed guy in front of him write inside this book a few minutes ago. He understood that this red-robed person had made this technique.
He wasn't sure if it was a cultivation technique that this guy had cultivated with and decided to write down, or if it was something he had made up just now. If the second case was true, then this guy would truly be a heavenly genius, as he was creating his own cultivation technique.
'This man is really amazing to be able to write such a cultivation technique. Did he just think of this technique and write it down, or was he always cultivating with this amazing technique and decided to make a copy of it for someone?' Long Chen thought in his mind.
"Whatever the case, as this is just a dream, I should not think too much. It is good enough that I get to learn it. I should be thankful to him for this opportunity. It's too bad that it's just a dream and I cannot interact with him and thank him personally," Long Chen said to himself.
Long Chen stood there trying to understand this method better. Although this cultivation method had similar cultivation levels, Long Chen could feel that it was a completely different approach.
Long Chen did not know what to call this technique as there wasn't any name written on it anywhere, so he decided to think about it later and name it then.
'As there is no name for it, I will just call it Nameless Cultivation Technique for now, and name it when I think of a name later.' Long Chen thought as he looked at the book.
Long Chen decided to test this cultivation technique. He sat down right there and started moving Qi according to the method described in this unnamed cultivation technique.
Just as he did that and started cultivating, he found out that all of the surrounding Qi from the air was entering his body at a speed faster than anything he had ever seen before. If he were to guess, he would probably think that it was more than a hundred times faster than his previous cultivation speed.
While Long Chen was cultivating inside his dream, in the real world his body was greedily sucking all the surrounding Qi from the air at an incredible pace.
Also, there was a slight increase in the pace of his blood conversion from red to violet, but it was negligible and would take long to convert his blood fully.
In his dream, Long Chen was still cultivation according to the Nameless Cultivation Technique. Long Chen was already at the peak of the Body Refining Realm for a long time, and now he wanted to take advantage of this increase in cultivation speed to break through to the Spirit Establishment Stage in one go.
He kept his focus on cultivation and followed every step that was mentioned in this cultivation technique. The surrounding Qi kept entering inside his body and moved along the specific places that Long Chen directed according to the Nameless Cultivation Technique.
After cultivating for a while, a small soul seed started taking shape inside his body. It slowly got bigger and denser.
After a while he felt like a barrier was broken, and a complete soul seed came into existence in his dantian. Long Chen knew at that moment that he had broken through. He smiled and opened his eyes.
"Finally, I have broken through to the Spirit Establishment realm, I have my own soul seed now!" Long Chen smiled happily as he tried to use his consciousness to look inside his dantian. Long Chen could use his consciousness now, as he had broken through to the Spirit Establishment Realm.
As his consciousness entered his dantian, Long Chen could see a small soul seed floating there. Although it was called a soul seed, it looked less like a seed and more like an eggshell. Long Chen was shocked as soon as he saw it clearly.
This soul seed was nothing like he had ever heard about. Long Tian's father, Long Jun, had already told Long Tian a lot about Spirit Establishment and the changes that occur with it.
Long Tian's grandfather Long Ren had also done the same and told Long Tian about cultivation when Long Tian was at the peak of the Body Refining Realm, before his accident. And Long Tian himself had read many books about cultivation. Through Long Tian's memories, Long Chen knew a lot about the Spirit Establishment realm. That's why he was shocked as he saw his soul seed.
"Why... Why is it like this...?" Long Chen muttered to himself, feeling shocked.
Long Chen knew that the soul seed of a cultivator was always white in color with no exceptions, but the soul seed that Long Chen had was vastly different.
Long Chen was shocked to see that his soul seed was golden in color, and he could also see there were a few violet patterns on his golden soul seed. He did not know why this was happening.
"Why is it golden? Normally it should have been white! Was it because of this cultivation technique? And what's with these violet patterns?" said Long Chen to himself, but he could not think of the answers to his own questions.
'I do not feel anything wrong with my body. In fact, everything is better than I could hope for, I am really in the Spirit Establishment realm. It's fine even if my soul seed is different, it is mine and there is nothing wrong with being an exception.' Long Chen thought as he looked happily at his soul seed.
"The main question is that since I am in a dream, I probably won't have this same cultivation in real life, but as long as I remember this technique, I can always breakthrough in the real world as well." Long Chen said to himself with determination.
"I should look around this room more. Maybe I can find some other techniques or books as well. Although I feel bad looking at this man's things without his permission, it's a dream, so it's probably okay." Long Chen said to himself with a guilty look on his face.
After thinking for a while, Long Chen decided to do it. He started looking around the room. He looked around everywhere, but he could not find any book. And there were even a few drawers that were locked, so he was not able to look inside them. Even after trying for a long time to open them, they did not open and Long Chen decided to give up on trying to open them.
Just as Long Chen was about to give up completely, his eyes fell on the trash can in the room, and he could see the edge of a book extending from it. Long Chen quickly ran to it and when he reached it, he could see clearly that it was truly a book. He wondered why this book was thrown inside the trash can.
He picked this book up, but this time there were a few words written on the cover.
