There are 3 eternal entities: Brahm (God, Paramatma), Jeev (soul, atma) and Maya.

The soul and maya are powers (shakti) of God. The soul is chetan, live and Maya is jad, lifeless. The soul has been turned away from God since eternity and is under the influence of Maya. Being under the influence of Maya, it is looking for happiness in the world. Maya may seem like being opposite to God but it is his power and is indirectly, his helper. Maya is in fact, God's servitor; it thrashes the soul in the world until he turns towards God. Once the soul turns towards God, Maya leaves that soul alone.
