in a hot air balloon realizes that he is lost. He spots a person on the ground, reduces his altitude, and

"Hey! Can you tell me where I am?"

The man below replies:
"Yes, as a matter of fact I can.

You are in a hot air balloon floating in the sky."

The balloonist says:
"Hmmm... you must be a spiritual

The man below says, "Well then, you must be a spiritual


"I guess I am" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," says the man, "you

don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help you. You're in the same

position you were in before we met, but now somehow it's my fault."
