Ghadhada First Section - Vachanamrut 27

Shreejimaharaj says that He resides in the heart of a person who recognises the Him as the creator and destroyer of all, and regards any situation of reverence as well as disgrace, and all objects, as being equal. Such a disciple acquires infinite spiritual prowess because of the His grace, and becomes capable of liberating innumerable souls. Those who frighten the meek, or frighten people by exhibiting their worldly achievements, are souls who belong to Maya and deserve hell. A gruhasth or ascetic who becomes attached with worldly objects are regarded as being narrow minded.
