Yes, everything is God. Even right now, in whatever condition you are, in this condition also You are God. Supreme Shiva involves in five activities -
- Emanation (Srishti).
- Re- Absorption (SamhAra).
- Concealment (Vilaye).
- Maintenance (Sthiti).
- Grace (Anugrah).
Now, Even after forgetting his real nature, Lord Shiva in the form of Jiva keeps doing these 5 activities.
Even in this condition (of the empirical
self), he (the individual) does the five krtyas
(deeds) like Him (i.e. like Siva). Pratyabhijna Hridyam Sutra 10.
Commentary by AchArya KshemrAj: When the great Lord who is consciousness (lit. whose form
is consciousness) entering into the sphere of the body, prana etc. on the occasion of the attention becoming external, makes
objects like blue etc. appear in definite space, time etc. then with
reference to appearance in definite space, time etc., it is His
act of emanation (srastrta). With reference to the appearance
of the objects in another space, time etc., it is His act
of withdrawal or absorption (samhartrta). With reference
to the actual (continuity of the) appearance of blue etc., it is
His act of maintenance (sthdpakata). With reference to
its appearance as different, it is His act of concealment
(vilayakarita). With reference to the appearance of every
thing as identical with the light (of consciousness), it is His
act of grace (anugrahitrta). As to how the Lord is always
the author of the fivefold act, I have extensively demonstrated
in Spandasandoha. Thus this authorship of the fivefold act
occurring within one's own personal experience, if pursued
steadily with firm understanding, reveals the Lord's greatness
to the devotee. Therefore, those who always ponder over this
(fivefold act of the Lord), knowing the universe as an unfoldment
of the essential nature (of consciousness), become
liberated in this very life. This is what the (sacred) tradition
