G-d's words to Adam (Genesis 3:9), "Where are you?" is a perpetual call to every person, at all times. G-d calls out to each and every one of us every moment of the day: "Where are you in the world? You have been allotted a certain number of days, hours, and minutes in which to fulfill your mission in life. You have lived so many years and so many days -- Where are you? What have you accomplished?"
– Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi

The true teacher is most present in his absence.

It is then that all he has taught takes root, grows and blossoms.

The student despairs for his teacher’s guidance,
and in that yearning, the student’s mind becomes as the teacher’s mind,
so that they become one.

Maamar Vayomer Lo 5728, 5732, 5737.
