lose (one's) bearings

- The scientists lost their bearings looking to the wonderful Heavy Hawk Rockets launching this morning.
- On the other hand, the government has lost its bearings after being hit by the opposition in the House last week.
- Moreover, the Judiciary seems to has lost its bearings during the last few months due to the deadly blow that came from the Legislative side regards the Justice Enforcement Act hauled over last year and sanctioned by the Chief of the Executive.

Lost bearings, lost marbles, all is not lost, perhaps one is just at one's loose ends.
