Question: is there an option in Maple to obtain same order of eigenvalues/eigenvectors each time?

In Maple, when calling LinearAlgebra:-Eigenvectors the order can change randomally each time. Ofcourse the result is always correct, but can show up in different order. 

I find this confusing, as I am looking at the screen, and see order changed each time. This is the order of how Maple shows the eigenvalues and corresponding eigenvectors.

Why does Maple do this? Is there a way to have same order given each time? Here is an example. If you run this code twice, most likely you will get different order each time. If not, try the command one more time.

lambda, v :=LinearAlgebra:-Eigenvectors(Sy);

I thought there might be a global option to tell Maple not to do this? 

Again, answer is correct each time. I just like same output to show each time, as it is less confusing. Sometimes I think I did something wrong when I see different output show up for same command.
