     This article is excellent and so very true. Unfortunately fear almost always accompanies chaos. My experience has been that unless the organization's leader can be comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty, he or she will just reinforce old systems even though they no longer work. This effort is most often executed through micro-management and bureaucratic procedures that remove the decision-making power of the individual. One need only observe government agencies to see this in action. The same can be said of an individual, but those who have a strong spiritual practice tend to be more comfortable with chaos. They have developed the faith and patience to allow the situation to settle into a new, higher order. This is the basis of personal growth and maturity, but it requires courage.

    There is complete (and perfect) order and peace in/ with God.  There is complete (and imperfect) disorder (chaos) in things of this earth.  The more anchored one is in TRUTH and LOVE (God), the more likely one will be still in "crazy times"!
    Be NOT overcome.
