Stanislav Groff speaks of spontaneous alignment this in the context of the spontaneous establishment of what Abraham Maslow called Metamotivations.

Mike Sosteric notes a historical case of spontaneous alignment.[3]

Offord provides several examples of folks who, after a powerful Conversion Experience, suddenly started behaving in a more Aligned fashion.
