THE PRINCIPLE

Principle LockersTHE PRINCIPLE

A Film for Peace About Cyber-Bullying 

Throughout history, bullying in all its forms – from schoolyard fights to catastrophic international wars – has destroyed millions of lives. Tragically, the global reach and 24-hour accessibility of today’s Internet and social media platforms make cyber-bullying an even more serious problem than traditional bullying because it affects more people and is rapidly spreading.

Cyber-bullying has now risen to dangerous levels among adolescents and teens and many are tormented on a regular basis. Often these victims are too ashamed to tell their parents or ask for help, and can develop psychological problems. Left unaddressed, some of the victims resort to suicide. Others become bullies themselves, and in their new role, create a new generation of bullies.

One of the greatest ways to capture the attention and teach our world about bullying is through film. One healing film that goes viral can quickly impact more hearts and minds than one million classes on the same subject.

John’s first film about the Middle East conflict, Admissions, won 26 international awards and was translated into Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi and broadcast to 80 million people worldwide. He has now written a second teaching film called The Principle which is a modern parable that tackles cyber-bullying. Academy Award® Nominee, James Cromwell, and the star of Admissions, recently agreed to direct The Principle.

In the film, a wise master is called upon to moderate between two teenagers – a cold-hearted cyber-bully and his tragic victim. In this unforgettable confrontation, the master delivers profound, life-changing teachings that alter both the bully’s and the victim’s destinies.

The Principle is a fiscally sponsored project at PEPSTAR.org.

LOVE BEING

The Theme Song to The Principle

______

I was living my life and I needed to switch

So I went searching for a better groove

When I entered your space you know I felt something shift

That’s when I first got my bliss from you

You had the feel of such beautiful truth

A love being meant to raise my mind

I feel you in my head you got a hold on me

And I want no way out of this paradise

I like the things that you said

And how you came to see

There’s more to life than we realize

You have the feel of such beautiful truth

A love being meant to raise my mind

You felt so good I moved closer to you

Found heaven now I love being alive

There was never a doubt when the truth came out

We all came from love from the mind up above

It’s not what we do it’s not what we have

The only thing that matters is what lasts

In the happy end love’s what we are

And the proof’s in you my shining star

You have the feel of such beautiful truth

A love being meant to raise my mind

You felt so good I moved closer to you yeah

Found heaven and now I love being alive

It goes deeper than thought to the source of being

Something earthly eyes are not trained to see

So look with your heart and get beyond all form

Find the reason why you were ever born

You have the feel of such beautiful truth

A love being meant to raise my mind my mind.

Followed my heart and moved closer to you

Found heaven now I love being alive
