A Web Of Hope

October 25, 2022


The Light is rising.

What you look for,
what you look at,
is what you see.

What you focus on increases.

The Light is rising.

Open your search engine and type in any of the following: spirituality, social justice, human rights, animal welfare, earth & environmental justice. The list of projects and organizations will be in the thousands. In fact as of 2018, there were 1.8 million non-profit organizations registered in the US, most within these categories. That’s one non-profit for every 184 people in this country. And of course countless projects and organizations are not registered. That’s a massive meadow of delight.

There were several charitable organizations founded in the early 1900s but the explosive proliferation happened after 1969 when the Tax Reform Act gave us Section 501(c)3 in the Internal Revenue Service Code. When organizations found that they could legally have
status as a charitable organization and offer tax exemptions to their donors, there was a surge in applications for 501(c)3 status. By 1980, the nonprofit sector was being referred to as the “third sector,” and it was influencing the business world. And our world.

All of these organizations, together with countless projects and organizations not registered, form an incredible web of hope. A web of possibility. A web of Light. A web that spans the globe.

The Light is rising!

  1. Great message for today. It should not be hard, for those of us who can, to find good places and good ways to contribute toward the good and thus add to the web of hope. Thanks!
