Re: Translation help

Yeah... This is exactly why the question was so unanswerable and everyone was reluctant to suggest anything. I think we need a native speaker. From what I understand jihatsusei would be used more for something natural. Maybe jihatsuteki would be OK. 自発的 ji hatsu teki. But I'll still go with yaruki やる気 or 遣る気 until someone Japanese tells me otherwise.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
