|| VERSE 10 | UPASAMA : SAMENESS OR QUIETISM OF SOUL ||
Whereas it is impossible for anything to exist beside the Spirit of GOD , it was the Spirit that " willed to become many " .
As there was nothing beside Itself , which It could think of or find for Itself , It was necessary that It became so of Itself , and without the aid of any extraneous matter .
