A psychotherapist informed by the Taoist principles within the existential-humanistic approach can thus includes the macro and micro into his/her spiritual world in the search for spiritual freedom and surpass the limitations of heaven and earth and arrive at the realm of the Tao. The dialogue between the Earl of the Yellow River and Overlord of the Northern Sea serves as an excellent analogy for illuminating Chinese Taoist principles found in Existential-Humanistic Psychology. Zhuangzi was purposeful in employing the Autumn Floods as an analogy for existence at the outset because people were familiar with its common occurrence: When the time of the autumn floods arrived, the hundred tributaries poured into the Yellow River. Zhuangzi inherited Lao Tzi's philosophy or attitude of letting it be as it is, and consequently raised a state of Tao that transcended limits and self.
