New Age

A metaphor for expressing transformative, creative spirits in the world in a way that opens one to the presence of God in all things. New Age is an expression of a balance between transformation and routine, between change and maturation, between the birth of what can be and what is, and between empowerment and surrender.

A vast array of philosophies, activities, belief systems and concepts have either aligned themselves or been identified with the New Age movement, including astral projection, channelling, graphology, global concerns, medical astrology mysticism, near-death experiences, New Age music, visionary art and others.

“…a metaphor for the expression of a transformative, creative spirit…for being in the world in a manner that opens us to the presence of God…in the midst of our ordinariness…”. See Alternative medicine, Healer.

Q. I would like to know the best age for pregnancy? Hi I am Deontae; I got married before 1 year. I and my wife planned to have a baby after 3 years. But now she is 25. I would like to know the best age for pregnancy? Which will help us to change our plan?

so if your wife is now 25, i think you guys still have another 5-10 years to "accomplish" your family plan, hehehe...
