Chiddush of Rebbe/Chossid Relationship

Several of the early chassidim had a farbrengen sometime between 5544-47 (1784-87) and the core of the discussion was this: The Rebbe (the Alter Rebbe) had accomplished something novel - that we are not alone. At one time, the Master - Rosh Yeshiva or Talmudic sage - was "alone" and his disciples were "alone." The chassidic way instituted by the Rebbe is a tremendous Divine achievement, that the Rebbe is not alone, nor are the chassidim alone

Can someone suggest an explanation of this? What exactly does "alone" mean in this context?

There was no personal relationship, i.e. yechidus farbrengen, or connection on a level of avodas Hashem. Only an intelectual relationship.

For descriptions of old time yeshivos on either side of that description see Zichronos.

But isn't the pshat in the Mishneh of "Asei lecho Rav" that one should seek guidance on a personal level as well? This was a chiddush of Chasidus?
