Xiang Nan couldn't see through this man's realm, but he didn't dare to underestimate him.
Judging from the man's performance just now, the impression he gave Xiang Nan could only be said to be a layer of mist.
Xiang Nan didn't even know what method this man had used to decipher his moves.
"If you're used to using a knife, just use it. Don't worry about it." The man said as he advanced.
Xiang Nan grabbed it with his right hand, causing the red dragon blade to tremble. He immediately flew into his hand and grabbed it tightly.
"Come." The man smiled and suddenly grabbed Xiang Nan's collar.
Xiang Nan immediately used his saber to cut the man's arm.
The man flipped his wrist and used three fingers to clasp the blade. Then, he raised his right hand and Xiang Nan was thrown back into the air, spinning non-stop in mid-air.
The shock in Xiang Nan's heart could no longer be described in words.
The man smiled and stretched out his hand to pull Xiang Nan back to the ground, apologizing, "I've offended you."
Xiang Nan's eyes widened as he said, "You … this is …"
Raging waves had already surged in his heart. Was this the strength of a true expert of the Star Guild?
How could there be such a huge difference between him and himself?
There was no way to know how powerful this man was, but Xiang Nan knew at least that the strength of his Yuan Qi and fleshly body when he fought against him was around the fifth level of the Heavenly Yuan Realm.
In other words, he and Xiang Nan were fighting on the same starting line!
"What? Don't you understand?" The man smiled and said, "I thought you could see through my'meaning '."
"Will?" Xiang Nan patted his forehead and suddenly understood.
The man smiled and shook hands with Xiang Nan, "Star Guild, Long Shaoqi."
Xiang Nan and Long Shaoqi held my hands together and said seriously, "Haoran Sect, Xiang Nan."
Long Shaoqi smiled and said, "I've seen your battles before. I know that you have already reached the threshold of your will, but no one has given you any guidance, leaving you in a state of confusion."
"Luckily, the Star Guild's protection of martial arts culture is still very good. It's just a mere talent and has some understanding of meaning. May I ask if Brother Xiang Nan is willing to listen to my nonsense?"
Xiang Nan was overjoyed in his heart. He quickly cupped his fists and said, "My friend and I have never known each other. I am extremely grateful for your willingness to teach me martial arts."
Long Shaoqi put his hands behind his back and said, "In the world of martial arts, many people have already felt the existence of meaning, but to them, the word meaning is only a superficial concept."
"What do you mean? How did you get it? How do you use it? Few people know this."
"Yes, I have a friend who is a genius of the Sword Dao. He has mastered the sword intent long ago." Xiang Nan said.
Long Shaoqi shook his head and said, "That kind of sword intent isn't really true. To endure death is only to see the door of intent, but not even touch the threshold."
"There are very different names for it. In the long river of history, it was once called 'Nian'."
"Will?" Xiang Nanqi said.
Long Shaoqi nodded and said, "Some people think that thought is just a human thought, but it has long been proven to be powerful."
"Some people can simply use their minds to move material objects. This is one of the most superficial manifestations of their minds."
Long Shaoqi raised his right hand and said, "What do you see in my palm?"
"Nothing," Xiang Nan shook his head.
Long Shaoqi smiled and said, "I've already wrapped my intent around my hand. When a person's intent is very strong, it can cover the surface of their body and form an invisible protective layer."
"Strictly speaking, meaning itself does not have any attributes or power. Pure meaning does not have any damaging effects."
"It must use weapons, Yuan Qi, fists and feet to display its function."
Long Shaoqi placed his right hand on the ground and said, "My intent has already touched the stone on the roof, but the stone has not been damaged."
As he spoke, he suddenly pressed down on his right hand. In an instant, a huge palm print that was far larger than his palm suddenly appeared!
Xiang Nan was greatly surprised, but he still found it hard to understand.
Long Shaoqi muttered, "How can I describe it … Well, you can treat your will as your saber. If you only put the saber on the ground, the ground will not be harmed."
"Only by holding a knife and hacking it down can you split the ground."
"Oh! I understand a lot when you say that." Xiang Nan suddenly understood.
The man said, "Actually, there are some martial artists from the ancient era who have dual cultivation of will and energy. Both Yuan Qi and will can greatly enhance the combat strength of martial artists."
"However, cultivating one's will does not allow a martial artist to raise their cultivation realm. For a long time, martial artists paid more attention to their cultivation realm, so gradually, most people chose to give up their will and focus on cultivating Yuan Qi instead."
"So it's like this." Xiang Nan nodded.
"Normally, I don't recommend cultivating." Long Shaoqi said, "Because dual cultivation of will and energy consumes a lot of time. If you have dual cultivation of will and energy since you stepped into the martial arts world, perhaps you are very powerful in the same realm."
"But you definitely can't reach the current Tianyuan 5th layer. Perhaps, the result of your dual cultivation is that you are only at the 5th layer of the Origin Return Realm."
Xiang Nan muttered to himself, "The drawbacks of dual cultivation are indeed very great. Even if my Yuan Qi and will are incomparably strong, if I am only at the fifth level of Origin Return, then I am not as strong as I am now. If I encounter an opponent at the Heavenly Origin Realm, I can only wait to die."
"It makes sense for a martial artist to give up cultivating."
Long Shaoqi nodded, "That's why I didn't recommend it to anyone to cultivate. At the same time, I also regret it."
"I can tell you clearly that I have the third level of Heaven Scryer. If I didn't have the will to cultivate back then, my current realm would have already reached the Fortune Realm."
Xiang Nan was shocked. The man looked less than thirty years old, but his talent was excellent.
"But you are an exception." Long Shaoqi smiled at Xiang Nan and said, "You have already reached the threshold of consciousness without undergoing any special training."
"The probability of someone like you appearing is extremely low. Even in the Star Guild, there are only a few of them."
"There are two possibilities. One is to cultivate for a long time, and the other is because of the martial artist's excessive love and dedication to fighting and martial arts."
"You belong to the latter."
"If you like." Long Shaoqi took out a book and handed it to Xiang Nan.
"Consciousness is divided into different levels. Your current level is called the Ethereal Spirit level. There are clear descriptions and cultivation methods for consciousness in this book."
Xiang Nan held the book and felt that it was very strange. He said, "Why are you willing to help me for no reason?"
Long Shaoqi said with a serious expression, "Because from my observation, I can confirm that you are someone who resolutely opposes the The Profound Sky Sect ."
