“After this, Ill take a walk in this world and see what the ordinary people of this new era are like.
Perhaps I can obtain some inspiration from them.”
Time passed like water.
In the blink of an eye, ten years passed.
In the past ten years, the Martial Dao True Body Technique had already spread widely.
Some of the more talented practitioners had already cultivated to the Xiantian realm and began to roam the world.
Of course, these martial artists were all beginners in the Martial Dao True Body technique.
In fact, there were already martial artists who had stepped into the Deva Realm.
This was because the cultivation method of the Martial Dao True Body and the old cultivation method were only different before the Deva Realm.
The previous realms could be interconnected, and there were no obstacles in switching the cultivation method.
However, as long as a martial artist had already relied on the old martial cultivation method to become a Deva, they could not switch to cultivating the Martial Dao True Body unless they crippled their current martial cultivation and regressed to the Earth Immortal realm.
Gradually, the difference between the so-called “new martial artists” and “old martial artists” was formed.
This situation had a huge impact on old martial artists.
Firstly, due to the fame and status brought about by their previous martial arts achievements, their hearts began to gradually fade or even collapse under the impact of the new martial artists.
Indeed, there were many Heaven Immortals, Heaven Monarchs, Mystic Deities, Golden Immortals, and Limitless Golden Immortals among the old martial artists.
They were still the strongest group of people on Chongyang Star.
In theory, as long as their strength was present, their status should not be affected.
But in reality, that was not the case.
This was because the strongest group of old martial artists, the Sages, Limitless Golden Immortals, and Golden Immortals alone, accounted for more than 70% of the population of the three Immortal Sects.
This group of experts were the founding fathers who established the Wu Dynasty and came from the Immortal sects.
Their reputation and status would not be affected at all.
The ones who were really affected were the medium and large forces that did not participate in the establishment of the Wu Dynasty.
There were not many top figures in these forces.
Even added up, they only accounted for 30% of the total.
However, the Third Realm of the Immortal World, which was the Deva Realm, Heaven Immortal Realm, and Heaven Monarch Realm, accounted for a huge majority of people.
The first conflict between the new martial artists and the old martial artists was at the Deva Realm, the Third Realm of the Immortal World.
Hence, many Devas were greatly affected.
Their original identities, status, and even interests in various aspects began to be affected by the new martial artists.
After ten years, this conflict had already intensified.
Yan Buqun was an old martial artist.
The huge changes in society had a huge impact on his life.
He came from a humble background, and his parents were only ordinary people.
Moreover, they did not have a stable career.
They wandered around lazily all day and finally died in an accident when he was ten years old.
Yan Buqun, who had become an orphan, could only beg for a living.
Later on, he accidentally obtained a martial technique manual from the corpse of an old beggar that could allow him to cultivate to the Xiantian realm.
It was as if he had obtained a treasure trove and he studied it diligently alone.
However, because he lacked the guidance of his teachers and basic martial arts knowledge, not only did he not manage to master the martial technique, he even crippled his right hand.
In the end, Yan Buqun could only offer this manual to the head of a dojo and ask him to treat his injuries and take him in as an apprentice.
Fortunately, the dojo master was quite righteous.
After accepting the manual, he really kept his promise to help him treat his injuries and even let him stay in the dojo to study.
Yan Buqun finally officially stepped onto the path of martial cultivation.
However, the good times did not last long.
In just three years, the enemy of the dojo master came knocking on his door.
The entire dojo was destroyed.
Yan Buqun only managed to escape because he was shopping outside.
Next, he began his life as a wandering cultivator.
He was a bandit, a horsekeeper, a hired thug, and a companion of wild beasts in the mountains.
Yan Buqun, who had not even reached the Xiantian realm after spending half his life, finally jumped off a cliff when he was chased down by his enemies.
He only wanted to die.
Unexpectedly, he fell into a cave at the bottom of the cliff and found a few spiritual fruits and a martial technique manual.
From then on, Yan Buquns luck changed.
He successfully became a Human Immortal at the age of a hundred and reached the Earth Immortal realm a hundred years later.
Originally, with his aptitude, he had no chance of becoming a Deva.
However, he was lucky enough to encounter Cui Hengs breakthrough phenomena and directly went from an Earth Immortal to a Heaven Immortal.
Even on Chongyang Star, a Heaven Immortal could be considered a mighty figure.
At the very least, he could be the leader of some organizations in a large city and be considered a reputable person.
Next, Yan Buqun opened a dojo and prepared to make a living from it.
The reputation of a Heaven Immortal was quite useful.
Many people came because of his reputation, and the dojo was very popular.
Unfortunately, the good times did not last.
A grand change began.
The Wu Dynasty was established.
Next was the appearance of a new martial path.
Almost overnight, all the students in the dojo ran away.
Especially after it was exposed that old martial artists above the Deva Realm could not switch to cultivating the new martial path, even his personal disciples left him one after another.
Just yesterday, Yan Buquns only remaining personal disciple had also bade him farewell and left.
In the end, he was the only one left in the huge dojo.
Yan Buqun sighed softly and closed the door of the dojo.
He turned around and looked at the empty hall.
The scene of the apprentices practicing martial arts here in the past was still fresh in his mind.
He slowly walked through the hall and arrived at the backyard.
Ignoring the sand and gravel on the ground, he lay on the ground and looked up at the night sky.
He stretched out his palm and grabbed, but he only grabbed empty air.
“In the end, it was all for nothing.
Even my Heaven Immortal cultivation was all for naught in the new era.”
Yan Buqun muttered, “I know that such a great social change is a good thing for most ordinary martial artists like me… its a huge blessing.
But I feel so wretched.
As an ordinary martial artist, it was almost impossible for him to obtain a martial technique that allowed him to step into the Mystic Deity realm.
As a Heaven Immortal, he also wanted to switch to cultivating the new martial technique.
But to cripple his Heaven Immortal cultivation and return to the Earth Immortal realm before switching to the new cultivation technique and starting again, Yan Buqun knew his limits.
If he really did that, there was a high chance that he would never be able to return to the Deva Realm.
He might as well just remain like this.
“Perhaps, I should have lived out my life as an ordinary person.” Yan Buqun looked back at his life and realized that it was really meaningless after having achieved nothing in the end.
Especially in this new era, there was no longer a place for him.
“What should I do next How should I live”
Yan Buqun felt that his life was completely worthless now.
His family had long passed away, and his apprentices and disciples had also left him one after another under the trend of the new era.
He was completely alone.
An unprecedented sense of confusion surged in his heart, actually making a Heaven Immortal like him feel a little suffocated.
At this moment, Yan Buqun suddenly heard a sound from the hall.
It seemed like someone was knocking on the door.
He sat up from the ground and looked in the direction of the hall in shock.
Then, he looked up at the night and muttered to himself in confusion, “Who else will come to look for me, especially at this time”
However, although he was puzzled, this knock on the door was like awakening the last bit of hope in the depths of his heart.
Yan Buqun stood up and walked over to open the door of the dojo.
“You are” Yan Buqun looked at the young man standing in front of his dojo in confusion.
This was a young man who looked to be about 20 years old.
He had a handsome appearance, gentle facial features, deep eyes, and a faint smile on his face, giving off a gentle feeling.
Yan Buqun carefully recalled his 200 years of life and confirmed that he had never seen this person.
Who was he
“Are you Yan Buqun” the young man asked with a smile.
His voice was gentle and pleasant, giving off a feeling like a spring breeze.
“Yes, yes, Im Yan Buqun.” Yan Buqun hurriedly nodded.
He instinctively felt that this young man was extraordinary, but he was still confused.
He asked curiously, “Are you here to look for me”
“Thats right.” The young man nodded slightly and smiled.
“Arent you going to let me in to talk”
