COVID-19 & Us Universe Secret Mixter

Us Universe Secret Mixter

It’s time for the Us Universe Secret Mixter!

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~Albert Einstein

In times of crisis, personal or global, we can easily forget our true connection to each other. We might isolate ourselves into imaginary shells of security, or withdraw into silent shadows. Perhaps we let fear guide us instead of reaching out for support. If we fall into an Us and Them mentality, we might lose our sense of compassion for each other — and forget that we are all part of the whole.

Our global community here at ccMixter is connected by the most powerful language in the world — music. Our creativity is based on collaboration, and sharing is integral to our process. With each remix we upload, we experience the wholeness of Us.

Sign-up for the Us Universe Secret Mixter March 8 through March 21, and commit to creating in the spirit of widening our circles of connection and compassion. Assignments will be emailed March 22, and after a two week remix period, upload day will be April 5. (Don’t be late or you’ll miss all the fun!)

Please refresh yourself on the guidelines and requirements to participate in a Secret Mixter HERE.

We are together, part of the whole — Us, Universe.

The sign up period for this mixup is closed. Participants are currently mixing it up. They will upload their remixes on: Sunday, April 5, 2020
