Verse 4.37.10

यस्मादात्मनो व्यतिरिक्ते वस्तुनि सिद्धे सति तत्रेच्छा प्रवर्तते ।
यत्र स्वात्मनो व्यतिरिक्तं न किंचिदपि संभवति तत्रात्मा किमिव वाञ्छन्किमनुस्मरन्धावतु किमुपैतु ॥ १० ॥

yasmādātmano vyatirikte vastuni siddhe sati tatrecchā pravartate |
yatra svātmano vyatiriktaṃ na kiṃcidapi saṃbhavati tatrātmā kimiva vāñchankimanusmarandhāvatu kimupaitu || 10 ||

Whereas it is impossible for any thing to exist beside the Spirit of God, it was the Spirit that "willed to become many". And 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.
