There is a famous story from the Seer of Lublin, one of the Hasidic masters of the 18th/19th century. The story goes that almost daily, the rabbi's son would venture into the forest near his home and remain there for hours at a time. Concerned about what he was doing, one day the rabbi approached his son and asked, "Why is it that you go into the forest every day?" "I go into the forest to find God," the boy replied. The rabbi chuckled, "Son, I'm very happy to hear that. But don't you know that God is the same everywhere?" "God is," said the boy, "but I'm not."
