The 'Dao' or the 'Way' are the principles that uphold the functioning of the cosmos and within the Three Realms consist of 10 Heavenly Daos, 81 Grand Daos and 108,000 lesser Daos. The Heavenly Daos are the most powerful and hardest to master Daos followed by the Grand Daos and finally the lesser Daos being the weakest and easiest to master.
Advancing in Ki Refining is closely related to ones own understanding of these Daos.

The Heavenly Daos are considered flawed and incomplete with there being no way at all to completely and thoroughly understand all of them at the same time, thus mastering nine Heavenly Daos is considered the limit.
Of the Heavenly Daos, the Heavenly Dao of Primordial Chaos is considered to be the most supreme of all, as all other Daos are created from the Dao of Primordial Chaos, those Daofathers master one of the other Heavenly Daos will begin attempting to comprehend it and those who have succeeded in completely master this Dao will become the most supreme powers comparable to both Mother Nuwa and Pangu, the only others who have mastered this Dao.
Grand Daos Edit
The next level of Daos are the Grand Daos, these Daos are composed of two types of Dao
Daos of nature (e.g. The Grand Dao of the Waterdrop) that are related to natural phenomena and may even contain subsidiary lesser Daos (e.g. The Grand Dao of the Waterdrop contains The Dao of Rainwater) and may themselves be a part of a Heavenly Dao (The Grand Dao of the Waterdrop belongs to the The Heavenly Dao of Water).
Technical Daos (e.g. The Grand Dao of the Sword) where a technical art has been advanced so far as to become a Dao of its own and thus they are unrelated to the natural mysteries of the world and rely as much on advancing ones own Dao heart as understanding their mysteries.
