Such a wonderful piece! I thought you might like these:

Bṛhad-āraṇyaka Upaniṣad(3.7.11) reads:

“He who dwells in the moon and the stars,

Yet is within the moon and the stars,

Whom the moon and the stars do not know,

Whose body the moon and stars are,

Who controls the moon and stars from within,

He is your self, the inner controller, the immortal.”

Also, in the Chāndogya Upaniṣad(3.13.7) we find:

“Now the light, which shines above this heaven,

Above all, above everything,

In the highest worlds beyond which there are no higher,

Verily, that is the same as this light which is here within the person.”
