The Heaven and Earth Great Shift was the earliest and most profound teaching of the Ming Cult. It was not inferior to the enduring martial arts teachings of the Nine Ying Scripture and Nine Yang Scripture.
At that time, The Heaven and Earth Great Shift was known to have seven levels. However, in reality it only had six levels of techniques. The seventh level had never been cultivated by anyone, but was in a realm created by the imagination of the creator. Over the thousands of years of impartation of skills by the Ming Clan, nobody had ever cultivated the seventh level.
After the Leader of the 34th generation of the Ming Clan had reached the magical realm, he relied on a very exciting and lively understanding of martial arts teachings to successfully complete the seventh level of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift. From then on, The Heaven and Earth Great Shift became a complete martial arts teaching guide.
However, in order to cultivate the seventh level of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift, one first had to learn the Nine Yin Scripture and Nine Yang Scripture to understand the interconnection and alternations of Yin and Yang before achieving the seventh level of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift.
The Nine Yin Scripture and the Nine Yang Scripture were already considered the strongest martial arts teachings in the world. Wanting to cultivate them was not an easy task. In fact, if one did not have the talent for it, he could live his whole life without achieving anything. As for a talented individual, learning one of them would already take a lot of effort and basically impossible to cultivate both books in entirety.
Someone with talent like the Leader of the 34th generation of the Ming Clan would only be produced once in a few hundred years. So even though the Ming Clan's Heaven and Earth Great Shift had been completed to the seventh level, nobody had been able to cultivate it after the Leader of the 34th generation.
Despite that, the Ming Clan had maintained their position at the pinnacle of Central Plains martial arts. The clan expanded their power and influence, and had surpassed many of the ancient martial arts to become the most powerful.
It could be said that after the Leader of the 34th generation of the Ming Clan, every generation's Leader was the strongest in all of martial arts and the clan was at the forefront of martial arts.
Even though nobody could learn both the Nine Yin Scripture and Nine Yang Scripture simultaneously after the Leader of the 34th generation, it did not mean that it was useless for more than one book to have been created. Conversely, it was precisely because of the existence of both books that ensured the presence of two strong martial artists in each generation of the Ming Clan.
Back then, there were many reforms going on within the Ming Clan and a new position of the Sacred Maiden had been created. That position was just below the Leader and allowed for the cultivation of the clan's most treasured and unparalleled martial arts.
The Ming Clan stipulated that the Leader was to cultivate the Nine Yang Scripture while the Sacred Maiden was to cultivate the Nine Yin Scripture. Once they had successfully cultivated both, the Yang and Yin would complement each other. With a joint practice of combined cultivation, they could achieve the cultivation of both the Nine Yin and Nine Yang within a short period of time. One could say that the Ming Clan's Leaders and Sacred Maidens were all couples. Only with the husband and wife working together with one heart could the Nine Yin and Nine Yang be successfully cultivated.
Moreover, the gist of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift was based on the fact that Yin and Yang could be interchanged and enhance The Heaven and Earth Great Shift.
It was purely by Yang and Yin, where the two are combined in cultivation, that would allow for one to truly grasp the exquisiteness of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift.
Hence, after the Leader and the Sacred Maiden had cultivated the Nine Yin and Nine Yang with a joint practice of combined cultivation, they could cultivate the sixth level of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift within a very short period of time.
Although the joint practice of combined cultivation was not done as one entity and would not allow the cultivation of the seventh level of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift, it could still ensure that the Leader and Sacred Maiden would achieve the sixth level of The Heaven and Earth Great Shift and become powerful martial arts practitioners.
Mo Wen looked at the Nine Yin Scripture and Nine Yang Scripture in his hand and thought to himself with amusement: he and Qin Xiaoyou had fell into the cave abode at the same time. One was Yin and the other was Yang and the two would complement each other. They could begin cultivating the Nine Yin Scripture and Nine Yang Scripture. Perhaps it was their fate that just did not allow it.
He flipped open the Nine Yang Scripture and started to read it thoroughly. As time went by, his expression became gradually more solemn and his entire being had been immersed in the Nine Yang Scripture. With each word and sentence, two hours had passed before Mo Wen completed the reading of the Nine Yang Scripture.
However, he did not stop and continued flipping open the Nine Yin Scripture. After two hours, he slowly closed the book and shut his eyes for a little, before once again flipping open The Heaven and Earth Great Shift. After two hours, he shut his eyes once again.
After a long while, he suddenly opened his eyes and his gaze was sparkling, his eyes beaming.
"The world's rare talent, really the world's rare talent" Mo Wen mumbled to himself while full of awe. That Leader of the 34th generation of the Ming Clan was really a rare talent out of this world and was truly worthy of the title of the great master of his generation.
After going through a thorough understanding and analysis by the Leader of the 34th generation of the Ming Clan, it was possible for the three segments of the martial arts teachings to be referred to as a single wholesome martial arts teaching; albeit a rare and unparalleled one. The Nine Yang Scripture and the Nine Yin Scriptures targeted the internal being while The Heaven and Earth Great Shift targeted the external. As the internal and external are targeted concurrently, the results would turn out great.
It was a pity that they were difficult to cultivate and that the single teaching had been split into three. It was treated as a three-segment martial arts teaching.
However, even so, a third of the essence of this martial art teaching could still be regarded as a classic. It was comparable to Mo Wen's family trade secret of the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon, and Heavenly Hand.
Even the Dragon Tiger Fist and the Overlord Fist could not compare; after the combination of all three segments into a single body, it remained the most profound martial arts teaching that Mo Wen had seen.
Back in those years after he had cultivated the Embryonic Breathing realm, he began to search for a breakthrough in the Golden Elixir realm, but to no avail. If he had read this martial arts teaching classic earlier, perhaps he would have achieved the Golden Elixir realm before entering the mysterious foggy forest.
Moreover, him cultivating the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon did not clash with the Nine Yin and Nine Yang. There were many similarities between the two and could even complement each other.
Mo Wen's profound learning of the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon was similarly a unique and enduring martial arts teaching. It could even coordinate with the Mo Clan's medical skills in saving people. The gist of the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon laid within the reconciling of the Yin and Yang to cultivate both the Yin and Yang Qi in the internal body. The two entities would interact and exist in mutualism: enhancing each other and morphing into a single entity.
The Yin could become Yang and the Yang could become Yin in a continuous cycle. It could form a huge Yin and Yang cycle and allow the Inner Qi to proliferate by itself. If one did not train the Qi with their own initiative, it could still become more profound. Moreover, after training up the huge Yin and Yang cycle, body's Inner Qi would not die out so long as the cycle was not interrupted. When faced with an opponent, the Inner Qi would swell and rise to the occasion making it basically impossible to be exhausted.
Also, the two Qis of Yin and Yang withheld the principles of life and death. Yang was life and Yin was death. With a grasp of Yin and Yang, one could also have control over life and death. Hence, after cultivating the two Qis of Yin and Yang, there would be extremely miraculous effects when saving patients.
Although the Nine Yin Scripture and the Nine Yang Scripture had been separated into two classics. After one combined the two, there were many key points and exquisiteness that were of a similar principle to the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon. However, the Nine Yang Scripture and the Nine Yin Scripture went more in depth into the coexistence of Yin and Yang. Their mutualism research was more complete and focused. In this area of comparison, the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon could not match up.
However, there were also advantages of the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon. The research was more in depth with regards to treating wounds and saving patients. After all, the Mo Clan was a highly respectable medical family and their research in this area could only be contended by very few.
Although the Nine Yin Scripture and Nine Yang Scripture were also very beneficial in treating internal wounds, it was still incomparable to the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon.
If Mo Wen could gain a thorough understanding of the Nine Yang Scripture, Nine Yin Scripture and the Celestial Scripture: Sun and Moon, it would drastically aid in the growth of his medical skills, understanding of the martial arts teachings, and the cultivation of his martial arts.
He could at least be sure that integrating the Nine Yang Scripture and Nine Yin Scripture did not rely on any external items. He could cultivate the Embryonic Breathing realm and even the Golden Elixir realm. Once he understood the principle of Yin and Yang, even if he had a late start, there would not be too much of an influence.
After all, this level of martial arts teachings had long surpassed the category of the usual ones.
