Conscious would mean knowing and perceiving, having awareness of your thoughts and actions, the ability to distinguish right and wrong. By being conscious you follow your principles, the path of righteousness which leads to right decisions, proper judgment, right actions all of which helps you to follow the right path of life. Its a cause of worry only when one deviates from ones conscious, as it would lead to wrong decisions and actions. Its said, every action has a reaction. Going by this logic Right thoughts and actions leads to Right results, whereas Wrong thoughts and actions leads to Wrong results. The proverb You reap what you sow is the best example for illustrating the importance of following ones conscious.

Conscious is a state of mind which decides what is gud and what is bad, it is a state of mind that saperates meaningful from meaningless... We need to worry about it becoz this state of mind allows us to take crucial decisions with some stability and correct judgement.

In simple terms conscious takes place, when you intend to grow in consciousness and use your increasing awareness to guide your actions and achieve a positive future...so, naturally you have to worry about it, because it happens to be a guiding factor...!

"Consciousness. The having of perceptions, thoughts, and feelings; awareness....When asked what consciousness is, we have no better answer than Louis Armstrong's when a reporter asked him what jazz is: "Lady, if you have to ask, you'll never know." (quoted in Pinker, How the Mind Works, p.60)

"The term is impossible to define except in terms that are unintelligible without a grasp of what consciousness means. Many fall into the trap of equating consciousness with self-consciousness -- to be conscious it is only necessary to be aware of the external world. Consciousness is a fascinating but elusive phenomenon; it is impossible to specify what it is, what it does, or why it evolved. Nothing worth reading has been written on it."
