I Shall Seal the Heavens - chapter-99
“The Demonic Core just keeps moving, and that prevents the Core sea
from entering Foundation Establishment. It just can’t form the Dao
Pillar…. I must form the Dao Pillar! I must reach Foundation
Establishment! I must stop the Demonic Core from moving. And that
requires more Spiritual Energy!”
The three Foundation Establishment Pills dissolved in his mouth, and a
shocking amount of spiritual power erupted. It poured into Meng Hao’s
Core sea, which moments ago had been in the midst of condensing, but was
then interrupted by the Demonic Core.
The lashing power caused the Core sea to shine with blinding golden
light. The Demonic Core, which seemed as if it would never stop spinning,
suddenly began to slow. The spiritual energy within the Core sea seemed
endless. A roaring sound could be heard which suppressed any indication
that the Demonic Core would begin to spin furiously again.
It stopped, unmoving. Popping sounds rang out from within the Core sea
and echoed throughout Meng Hao’s body. His entire Core sea seemed as if
it were freezing over. In the space of a few breaths, it suddenly became
At that moment, it seemed almost as if Meng Hao’s life had ended. His
breathing slowed, and his body began to shake. His eyes shined, and he
took a deep breath as the Qi Condensation Manual of the Sublime Spirit
Scripture appeared in his mind. The solidified Core sea began to slowly
It grew smaller and smaller, changing into a diamond-shaped crystalline
rock which contained the Demonic Core. More spiritual energy from the
Foundation Establishment Pills poured down, and slowly the Core sea
Even as it replenished itself, it began to shrink again upon itself to
form an additional diamond-shaped lump of crystalline rock. Then, more
spiritual energy poured in, and the process began again.
Meng Hao knew the process would take a long time, and would require a lot
of spiritual energy, which was why he had selected this valley. He
smacked his bag of holding and began to consume more medicinal pills.
Over and over again, his Core sea replenished itself and then solidified
into the diamond-shaped crystalline rock. Meng Hao lost track of time.
One month. Two months. Three months… six months….

Spring passed and autumn arrived, then the cold of winter. A year had
passed since Meng Hao entered the Immortal’s Cave to practice secluded
meditation. Every full moon during that year, the seven Cultivators would
come to pull on the red rope.
Their best effort resulted in pulling out fourteen-hundred ninety-nine
meters. They were never able to pull out the final one meter. As time
passed, the seven men noticed that the spiritual energy of heaven and
earth in the area seemed to have been reduced.
Of course, it was being absorbed by Meng Hao, but they didn’t know
that, and couldn’t figure out why it was happening. They searched the
area, but came up with nothing. They didn’t even think to connect the
phenomenon to Meng Hao. A year had passed, which in their minds was
evidence that he had died.
The man who had lost his Spirit Snake that year would often look toward
Meng Hao’s Immortal’s Cave with a cold sneer. The death of his Spirit
Snake had left him with a deep hatred of Meng Hao.
He tried several times to break into the cave to collect Meng Hao’s
treasures from his corpse. But he was never able to succeed.
Time passed, another half year. Meng Hao had now been in secluded
meditation for a year and a half. One late night, his Core sea was again
solidifying into a diamond-shaped crystalline rock. This was the
A roaring could be heard, and the hundred diamond-shaped rocks suddenly
began to fuse together. Slowly, they formed into a transparent,
crystalline Dao Pillar!
Foundation Establishment Dao Pillar!
As soon as the Dao Pillar appeared, Meng Hao’s agitated breathing
calmed down. His eyes grew dim, and the functioning of his internal
organs slowed. He was motionless; even his blood seemed to stop
circulating. His entire person seemed to be in a state of suspended
Everything was completely still.

Meng Hao knew that this was the second phase in the process of reaching
Foundation Establishment. This was Recuperation.
He sat there cross-legged, his mind echoing with the Qi Condensation
Manual of the Sublime Spirit Scripture. He sank into a very strange
state. Even though his blood and flesh did not seem to be undergoing any
change, in actuality, they were. They were changing in a way that made it
much easier to absorb spiritual power.
His Qi passageways enlarged. No spiritual power circulated through them.
However, they grew tougher, firmer, and smoother. His bones were
different as well, even crystalline in some places. He was transforming,
becoming something other than mortal. These changes shook his entire
body. His hair grew much longer and he became taller than before.
There was no Core sea within him anymore, but rather, a golden Dao
Pillar. It was a flat, circular platform that did not shine, but rather
seemed dark and somewhat lonely. It floated in the place where the Core
sea had once existed. If you looked closely, you could see Meng Hao’s
Demonic Core, right in the center of the Dao Pillar.
It sat there motionless, completely and perfectly fused with the Dao
His heart did not beat, his blood did not flow. His Qi passageways were
motionless, and his Qi had disappeared. Meng Hao sat there looking
withered up. His Dao Pillar was in a similar state. All of his Qi had
been sucked away.
He sat that way for another half of a year. Breaking through into
Foundation Establishment had taken him two full years. Others would be
shocked if they knew of this. Generally speaking, the longest amount of
time a Cultivator needs to reach Foundation Establishment is half a year,
often it will take only a few months. The amount of spiritual energy
required was not immense either, nothing close to what Meng Hao had
needed. The amount of time and spiritual energy wasted by Meng Hao was
far and above the norm.
Toward the end of the last half-year, Meng Hao’s Dao Pillar began to
tremble and vibrate. This was the first thing that began to move within
his body. Next, his heart began to beat. All of his systems kicked into
motion. His blood began to flow, his Qi passageways began to operate, and
his Qi filled with signs of life force. Slowly, he began to awaken as if
Soon, the Dao Pillar began to shine brightly with golden light, which
grew more and more intense. His heart thumped so wildly it seemed as if
it might burst out of his body. Its sound filled the Immortal’s Cave.
Every beat of his heart sent blood flowing throughout his body. His Qi
billowed out, and it seemed he would soon be filled with power and would
be able to open his eyes at any moment.
This power was not to to be used simply to open the eyes, but rather to
awaken his body. It moved about within him, growing stronger, imbuing his
body with strength!

It was at this moment that the Dao Pillar within him emitted a thunderous
roar. A powerful spiritual power burst out from it, blasting out into
Meng Hao’s Qi passageways, flesh, blood and bones. Like the life of
spring which causes a withered tree to sprout, his body awakened. His Qi
grew stronger, and massive amounts of filth exuded from his pores,
replaced by a fragrant aroma which arose from him. His long hair floated
around him. He looked completely different than he had half a year ago.
As the spiritual power emanated out, his Qi passageways filled with
power, and his blood flowed faster. His heartbeat caused the Immortal’s
Cave to tremble, and his eyes… it was at this moment that his eyes
A blinding light shot out from within them. If a Qi Condensation
Cultivator saw it, their mind would reel and their Cultivation base would
The moment he opened his eyes, the spiritual energy in the valley was
swept up. It was as if Meng Hao had become a black hole, swallowing up
all of the spiritual energy in sight. It was absorbed through his pores
and into the Dao Pillar, which grew brighter and brighter. Meng Hao’s
Qi grew even more powerful.
His heart thumped as the feeling of power blossomed in his mind. He knew
beyond the shadow of a doubt that by simply lifting his hand, he could
cause the entire Immortal’s Cave to collapse. This was a confidence
based on his physical body, his mind, and his Cultivation base.
The Spiritual Sense in his mind grew larger. Because of what he had
experienced in completing the great circle of Qi Condensation, his
Spiritual Sense leapt to up to a higher level. At the moment it was far
more powerful than that of the average Foundation Establishment stage
In fact, his Spiritual Sense completely exceeded that which a Cultivator
should have at the early Foundation Establishment stage. It was actually
equal to that of the middle Foundation Establishment stage.
And to Foundation Establishment Cultivators, Spiritual Sense was
Meng Hao’s breathing echoed out. The spiritual energy of heaven and
earth poured into him, and the Dao Pillar grew more and more bright.
Soon, his entire body shined with golden light.
The power of Foundation Establishment Cultivators far exceeds that of Qi
Condensation Cultivators. By moving his mind, he could see everything
within fifteen hundred meters as if it were within his own heart. This…
was Spiritual Sense!

A Cultivator at the beginning Foundation Establishment stage could
normally only cast Spiritual Sense six hundred meters ahead.
“The beginning Foundation Establishment stage….” said Meng Hao
slowly. As his voice echoed out, his face shone with vigor. His eyes
glowed, and he breathed deeply, feeling the power of the spiritual energy
emitted by the Dao Pillar. His was a hundred times stronger than the
power he could utilize half a year ago when at the peak of the thirteenth
level of Qi Condensation.
Of course, that difference of one hundred times was not in comparison to
the ninth level of Qi Condensation, but rather the thirteenth. To Meng
Hao, this was a complete and utter change.
This was why Foundation Establishment Cultivators could so easily wipe
the ground with Qi Condensation Cultivators. The Core sea of Qi
Condensation is congealed a hundred times to form the Foundation
Establishment Dao Pillar. The change that Meng Hao had experienced this
night sent his power leaping upward. It was without comparison!
