path to 3rd step: difference between source origin, essence & joss flames

hello people, do you know if these terms refer to the same concept? I see that joss flames are some kind of "fuel" for essence, but what about source origin? it's been a while since it has showed up and it seemed pretty important for reaching 3rd step. I don't know if they are different translations for the same concept or not.

  • Source origin is what Rex has been translated Essence for a while. Joss Flame is different thing.

    If you already read ISSTH then Essence here and there is the same, you need to complete your Essence in order to breakthrough to Third Step. It's somekind of culmination of cultivator Dao. As for joss flame, its related to the truth about current world but to be short the joss flame here is not really the real joss flame.

    Even using the real joss flame will limit your own enlightenment. That's why people can only have limited essence at third step which make people who has many Essence before breakthrough amazing. Normally, the Essence you have at third step is the amount you completed before breakthrough and the one you gain during enlightenment to breakthrough to Arcane Void, the number of Essence you have wasnt related to your level of cultivation. Other than these occasion, even if you can gain more Essence it can't be completed. WL wont use Joss Flame therefore the number of Essence he can has is not limited and he need to form more Essence in order to breakthrough during Third Step levels.

    Its never mentioned again about Master Flamespark. However, since people need to form Essence in order to breakthrough to third step, you can assumed that he already start cultivating it.

    Essence (Previous called Source Origin)and Joss Flame are entirely different.

    Everyone who breaks into 3rd step (or to break into 3rd step) MUST have Essence.

    To break into 3rd step you need to complete your Essence.

    Most people currently use the "Joss Flame" to complete/fill in their Essences, and once they are "Complete" they use them to break into 3rd step. (Hence the "hint" of essence with Master Flamespark, he was on his way to the 3rd step).

    The MC is using his own understanding/comprehension to complete his Essences, avoiding using the "Joss Flame".
