Vedanta says that Truth is Sat-Chit-Ananda which is Is-ness-Illuminating (conscious)-Bliss. The existence(Is-ness) and Illuminating essence is evident but the Bliss is hidden. Hence, realisation is uncovering this Bliss which is innate and natural.

Maya which is an undefinable or inscrutable power, makes us search for that which in innate and natural in things outside. Infact we search for all three Is-ness-Consciousness- Bliss outside of ourselves.

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21
