Book 07 Chapter 019: Opening the Heavenly Eye
Only Gu Hai remained in the demonic chasm.
He sat down cross-legged, and an enormous heavenly soul appeared behind him.
The heavenly soul was two hundred seventy meters tall, and its entire body shone golden. However, as the wisps of Shaman Energy entered his body, his heavenly soul slowly turned black.
The Shaman Energy here was very dense, but his heavenly soul could not absorb it quickly.
“Won’t it take decades to absorb all the Shaman Energy here?” Gu Hai frowned slightly.
However, this Shaman Energy seemed ethereal. There was no way to capture it physically; only the heavenly soul could absorb it. This made Gu Hai anxious.

Decades? It will be too late by the time I get out.
“The Worldly Sorrowful Endowment?” Gu Hai’s eyes lit up.
Just at this moment, Gu Hai felt the Spiritual Progenitor deity king send some energy to the heavenly soul. This came from the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment.
“The heavenly soul can cultivate the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment too?” Gu Hai felt slightly startled.
Gu Hai closed his eyes and quickly drove the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment.
Indeed, as Gu Hai circulated the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment, his heavenly soul’s absorption of the surrounding Shaman Energy accelerated, reaching tenfold its previous speed and even faster.
“The Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivates energy. Once a certain standard is achieved, one condenses an energy core. Each energy core is one layer. Energy core?” Gu Hai said extremely seriously.
As Gu Hai cultivated the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment and refined the surging Shaman Energy, the energy slowly gathered at the head of the heavenly soul, forming a small energy whirlpool.
When the small energy whirlpool appeared, the rate of absorbing the Shaman Energy increased severalfold.
The heavenly soul frantically absorbed the Shaman Energy.
As Gu Hai cultivated the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment, an indent appeared in the heavenly soul’s forehead. Gu Hai’s eyes suddenly lit up.
“The Worldly Sorrowful Endowment is breaking through?” Gu Hai said in surprise.
The outline of an eye emerged slowly in that indent, a vertical eye.
With the surging Shaman Energy, this eye grew more distinct and material.
Gu Hai’s heart pounded intensely despite himself.
He understood that the most challenging thing for him was not advancing his cultivation but his cultivation of the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment. It had only reached the third layer so far, with no further progress.
When Gu Hai was tossed into the demonic chasm earlier, he felt some resentment. Now, he no longer did. Instead, he felt gratitude, as the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment seemed to be making a breakthrough.
When the eye outline and the Shaman Energy whirlpool appeared, the absorption of the Shaman Energy in the demonic chasm became outright plunder. The speed was tens of times—even hundreds of times—faster than before.
Then, the Shaman Energy whirlpool slowly liquified. It coalesced into a small ball of liquid, then gradually solidified.
After some time, the solid ball underwent another qualitative change. There seemed to be an explosion within it, blasting open a large space within the solid ball. This space seemed like a universe, vaguely showing stars and plants formed by Shaman Energy.
By now, Gu Hai had already absorbed ninety percent of the Shaman Energy in the demonic chasm.
“The first Shaman Energy core? The Upper Heavenly Palace Realm’s second layer?” Gu Hai felt pleasantly surprised.
On the other side, the eye outline on his heavenly soul’s forehead was almost fully formed, becoming a strange black eye.
Gu Hai understood that the Shaman Energy core had absorbed only one-third of the earlier surging Shaman Energy. This eye had taken the other two-thirds. Now, this strange black eye turned increasingly distinct, on the verge of completion.
“Form!” Gu Hai shouted.
The final remaining ten percent of Shaman Energy immediately poured into his heavenly soul.
The strange black eye gave off a loud sound as it turned wholly solid and embedded itself into the heavenly soul’s forehead.
“The Worldly Sorrowful Endowment’s fourth layer, opening the heavenly eye?” Some shock flashed in Gu Hai’s eyes.
The heavenly eye opened, but where’s the earlier Shaman Energy core?
The startled Gu Hai sent his consciousness into his heavenly soul to search for it. However, the Shaman Energy core had vanished.
“That’s impossible! It must be somewhere around!” Gu Hai frowned slightly.
After carefully searching around, Gu Hai finally found it. The Shaman Energy core had shrunk significantly and entered the heavenly eye’s pupil.
The heavenly eye was like a black hole of an abyss. The Shaman Energy core floated in this black hole like a star. Without a careful look, he would not have found it.
Gu Hai felt surprised.
The heavenly soul reached into its body and grasped.
The Shaman Energy core sent surging energy into the heavenly soul. Then, the heavenly soul filled Gu Hai’s body with energy. His strength immediately soared significantly. Now, he believed he was more than a match for the Scarlet Emperor, not needing to resort to fancy moves and able to kill the Scarlet Emperor with one punch.
“That’s right. The Upper Heavenly Palace Realm’s second layer! Although the energy core is in the heavenly eye’s pupil, there does not seem to be any impact?” Gu Hai let out his bated breath.
As the Shaman Energy above disappeared, Chiyou’s seal vanished with a loud sound.
At this moment, Chiyou and his eighty-one brothers were preparing to break into a tightly guarded city on the Divine Continent. The soldiers and the city lord in the city looked horrified.
“Big Brother, give the command! We can’t wait any longer!” Ahda said excitedly.
“Hah!” the giants roared.
Chiyou suddenly turned his head towards the Eastern Sea.
“He broke the seal already? That brother of mine is quite impressive!” Chiyou grinned widely as his eyes narrowed.
Then, he turned his head back to the city before him, no longer bothering with the Eastern Sea.
Above the Eastern Sea:
Gu Hai flew out of the demonic chasm.
After the demonic chasm drained of Shaman Energy, it seemed to crumble.
A vast amount of water gushed in, forming a small tsunami.
Gu Hai looked at the sky as he stood in the air.
“Heavenly eye? What functions do you have?” Some anticipation flashed in Gu Hai’s eyes.
When Gu Hai’s heavenly soul activated the heavenly eye, a third eye suddenly appeared on the forehead of Gu Hai’s physical body.
When the eye opened, his perspective immediately rose into the sky.
Opening the heavenly eye drained Shaman Energy. The Shaman Energy core immediately poured a vast amount of Shaman Energy into the heavenly eye. The heavenly eye immediately saw the ends of outer space—the very edge of space and time.
“Oh?” Gu Hai said in shock.
Gu Hai lowered his head and looked in the Divine Continent’s direction.
Despite standing above the Eastern Sea, Gu Hai instantly saw Borderless Heavenly Capital and the Soaring Palace Hall with the heavenly eye.
“This vision?!” Gu Hai appeared shocked.
Gu Hai looked around quickly with this incredible vision. There seemed to be no hiding from this heavenly eye, no matter where it was.
However, this world was too big. Gu Hai could not accurately locate every place. Borderless Heavenly Capital earlier had been a coincidence.
“Great vision! Excellent heavenly eye! It seems like this is not the limit?” Gu Hai said in shock as he continued driving the Shaman Energy.
As the heavenly eye turned to the ground and Gu Hai poured in Shaman Energy, he raised his eyebrows, betraying a trace of shock.
“The nether realm? The heavenly eye can peer into the nether realm?” Gu Hai said in astonishment.
It can’t be wrong! Previously, the Unborn Man brought me to the nether realm. This scene looks quite similar to that. Gu Hai had even seen a city with the signboard “Greatly Abundant Ghost City.”

When the heavenly eye closed, Gu Hai felt slightly fatigued. The heavenly eye vanished from his forehead and returned to the heavenly soul’s forehead.
Opening the heavenly eye required vast amounts of energy, especially when looking into the nether realm. Just a glimpse left Gu Hai feeling more tired than fighting for an entire day.
No wonder the Shaman Energy core had gone to the heavenly eye’s pupil. It was to provide energy to the heavenly eye at any moment.
“Eyes of Life and Death? Heavenly eye? The Worldly Sorrowful Endowment is indeed awesome. Five endowment cultivation techniques? The Six Paths Immortal has one, and I have one. Does that mean there are three more in the world? That is to say, there should be three more people capable of this miraculous ability I have? Or perhaps they have different abilities that are no weaker than the Worldly Sorrowful Endowment?” Gu Hai said gravely.
“First Brother Chiyou left me this boundless Shaman Energy. It should have condensed three Shaman Energy cores, allowing me to reach the Upper Heavenly Palace Realm’s fourth layer in one go. Unfortunately, I only formed one. However, it does not matter. The birth of the heavenly eye is definitely much more important than the Shaman Energy cores. Never mind, I received news from Borderless Heavenly Capital that the Wu Imperial Dynasty in the north is getting restless and planning to march on the Han Nation. Long Shenwu? Hah! How bold of him! Does he think he can easily deal with us after we returned from the past and lost the Go Dao laws? Humph!” A cold, sharp look flashed in Gu Hai’s eyes.
Gu Hai took out a zither puppet and listened to all the transmissions as he flew to Borderless Heavenly Capital.
“Oh? The armies already clashed?” Gu Hai narrowed his eyes slightly, revealing a cold smile.
Gu Hai was very familiar with Borderless Heavenly Capital’s military force. The top-level experts included Mo Yike, Gu Qin, Gao Xianzhi for civil matters, and Kong Xuan, Shangguan Hen, and Ao Shun for military might. The mid-level cultivators included five hundred thousand Divine Demon Army soldiers.
The Han Imperial Dynasty did not fear any invaders. So what if the Wu Imperial Dynasty invaded? The Wu Imperial Dynasty would not be a match even if he did not take action.
“The Myriad Age Daoist Sect disciples? The Spirit Mountain Holy Land disciples?” Gu Hai’s face suddenly sank.
Gu Hai turned grave after hearing the information from the zither puppet. The Wu Imperial Dynasty conspired with the Myriad Age Daoist Sect and the Spirit Mountain Holy Land. Did Sect Master Heavenly Access go to Borderless Heavenly Capital to block me?
It looks like the Han Imperial Dynasty is in danger.
“A spy? A traitor?” Gu Hai’s face sank.
According to Mo Yike, a spy had appeared among the Han Imperial Dynasty’s leadership. This spy leaked the Han Imperial Dynasty’s defense plans?
Gu Hai had handpicked the Han Imperial Dynasty’s leadership. How could there be a spy?
This matter was more severe than the Wu Imperial Dynasty’s invasion to Gu Hai.
“Hold back the troops and wait for us to return!” Gu Hai sent using the zither puppet.
The zither puppet quickly relayed his message to Borderless Heavenly Capital.
At this moment, Gu Hai felt anxious, increasing his speed to the maximum. He turned into a beam of light, rushing to Borderless Heavenly Capital.
Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
Although Gu Hai was just in the Upper Heavenly Palace Realm’s second layer, a fifth-layer Upper Heavenly Palace Realm cultivator might not be faster than him.
Two days. Gu Hai entered the Han Imperial Dynasty’s territory in just two days.
