When the Seer of Lublin was a child - 4 or 5 - his teacher had trouble with him in school. He was always running off into the woods. His teacher would try and discipline him - but it didn't do any good.
One time his teacher followed him deep into the woods, and saw him sit down on the forest floor and, trembling, scream out "Shma Yisrael...!"
His teacher didn't give him a hard time after that.
His father once asked him, though, "Why are you going out into the woods all the time?"
"To find God," he responded.
"Don't you know that God is the same everywhere?", his father pressed.
"God's the same everywhere," he said, "but I'm not."
