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 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.

That is why we titled the upcoming Secret Mixter "Us Universe." From March 8 through March 21, participants commit to creating music in the spirit of widening our circles of connection and compassion.
