God knows everything. He is everywhere. He is beyond change, creation, destruction, time, and causation. He is eternal. A staunch devotee, such as Prahlada, sees Him everywhere. God also does not disappear from the mind of such a person.

God knows everything. He is everywhere. He is beyond change, creation, destruction, time, and causation. He is eternal. A staunch devotee, such as Prahlada, sees Him everywhere. God also does not disappear from the mind of such a person. Bhagavan says in the Gita:

But nowadays some people ask: "If God is everywhere, why is His glory not reflected in every place?"

Sri Shankara Bhagavatpadacharya replies:

Though God is omnipresent, His grace is experienced only by a pure intellect. A 'pure' intellect is that in which all Vasanas (past tendencies and impressions) have dissipated and desires have vanished. The person's mind is rendered clear, consequent upon the Guru's Upadesha (instruction). Only such a person can benefit by the grace of God.

For example, a person can see the reflection of his face only in a mirror, and not in wood or a wall. The reflection also will be in proportion to how clean and clear the mirror is. Paramatma is likewise. His presence and grace will be commensurate with the degree of calmness of the mind of a person.
