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

I believe that there is a system of core values which are transpersonal, which transcend those of the existing cultures. It is an ethical system that emerges spontaneously out of profound mystical experiences. It includes values upon which people from different cultures who have had these experiences repeatedly would agree. I have seen this phenomenon repeatedly in our work...[1]

Mike Sosteric notes a historical case of spontaneous alignment.[2]

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

I was once one of the dirtiest, drunken, fighting old tramps you ever saw. God converted me in an instant; I never swore an oath since that day, nor knocked a man down--that is, in anger;...but what I claim is that God takes the ugly fight all out of a man when he converts him....he takes away all desire to harm any one else.[3]
