Krishna conscious enough so that we will be able to get back to Krishna at the end of the life. Now when the balance gets tilted towards sense gratification it’s then dangerous. Then we can become animals in our next… in our future births, because what keeps us as human beings or what causes us to go back to Krishna is depended on our desire, how much desire do we have to serve Krishna. If our overriding desire is to serve and please then we will go back to Krishna.
