It is referenced by Israel Regardie, Ralph Walder Emerson, and others. Petey Stevens speaking about the "levels" of consciousness: "The Oversoul. At this level you are the essence of all that is. This is where you begin to be conscious of the interconnectedness of all that exists: the oneness. The God within creates direction here.
Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal ONE. And this deep power in which we exist and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one. We see the world piece by piece, as the sun, the moon, the animal, the tree; but the whole, of which these" are the shining parts, is the soul.
