When one experiences one's life as chaotic one can either seek to find the order hidden amidst the apparent chaos or seek to impose order on the actual chaos that is there. Or both. sometimes the chaos is real and one is called to order it, as an exercise of one's stewardship over creation. Sometimes the apparent chaos is actually a result of interior disorder, whether emotional, intellectual, volutional, or a combination thereof. then to impose might be destructive. Careful discernment is important when one experiences chaos. That is what Ignatian principles of discernment are meant to help with.
