In the spiritual sense, Easter is symbolic of sacrifice, self-less service, optimism, hope, renewal and rebirth as new person in you. Easter, in its truest sense, is the day of resolve to embark upon the journey of self-discovery.
Phillips Brooks sums up the spiritual message of Easter as: "Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, 'Christ is risen,' but 'I shall rise.'"
"I think we need to do some deep soul searching about what's important in our lives and renew our spirit and our spiritual thinking, whether it's through faith-based religion or just through loving nature or helping your fellow man," says Louie Schwartzberg and Easter is the right occasion to give ourselves a new lease of life.
