The Spontanist

Note: I use the pronoun “he” in this post (mostly because I included the picture of myself below). But if your vessel is of the female variety, feel free to substitute it with “she” while reading.


The Spontanist is the physical embodiment of spontaneity, living in perpetual celebration of the present moment.

The past can be learned from and the future can be used to plan, but the now is where life happens. The present is where the Spontanist resides.

The Spontanist welcomes change.

The only constant is change. The universe is in a state of continuous flux and so are we. Atoms are 99.999999999999% empty space and electrons are blinking in and out of existence. There is no real solidity! The world around us, as well as our bodies, are amalgamations of slowed vibrations. So to think that we are rigid, fixed and unchanging is utterly insane. The Spontanist leverages the permanent impermanence of reality. He rides the winds of change without resistance.

The Spontanist embraces the unknown.

He does not fear the unknown but greets it with open arms. Life is mysterious. Existence is enigmatic. There are so many unknowns. Certainty is an illusion but we all have the ability to handle anything life throws at us. The Spontanist understands this and gratefully accepts mystery as the key to adventure.

The Spontanist does not confine their entire identity to a label.

He has no need to box his identity inside of a nationality, race, gender, political party or name. Why imprison the self within a label, when you can choose the whole? (And the liberation that comes with it.) The Spontanist just is.

Yes, the word “Spontanist” is a label, but it is only a signpost, not an identity. And a signpost to describe only one aspect of being, at that.

When asking the question “Who am I?” the only plausible answer for the Spontanist is “I am.”

The Spontanist has no rigid, static personality to uphold.

(Nothing is rigid and static anyway, though we might delude ourselves into thinking so.)

He is free to be however he wants to be. His sense of self isn’t relegated to adjectives that describe behavior. The Spontanist isn’t quiet or loud, athletic or nerdy. He embodies any adjective, depending on what the moment brings. The Spontanist dances, not because he is a dancer, but because he feels like dancing.

The Spontanist is guided by intuition.

Intuition is his inner compass. The Spontanist flows through life, surfing streams of intuition into the magical mystery of existence. He uses inner judgment to determine his path, not the opinions other people or the standardized norms of society.

The Spontanist is dynamic.

He happily adjusts to any situation. He is strong yet yielding, flexible yet empowered.

The Spontanist epitomizes water as described by Bruce Lee…

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”

The Spontanist doesn’t suppress desires.

He knows how to differentiate between genuine desires and deceitful desires. The Spontanist operates through intuition, not ego. He is motivated by love as opposed to fear. Acting out of a place of love, the Spontanist is confident with any decision-making.

The Spontanist has faith.

The Spontanist has faith in himself. He has faith that everything happens for a reason and everything is a learning experience. He has faith that he harbors the ability to gracefully flow through even the most turbulent of life’s waters.

Spontaneity is the spice of life and the Spontanist is a master chef.

Now is always the perfect time to cook up some freestyle fun.
