Excerpt from Journal of the Gypsy Lore Society, Vol. 1: July 1907-April 1908 It is only due to the memory of our former associates that their names should be here recalled, but I have no desire to moralise upon the old theme of Are longa, vita brevis, although it naturally suggests itself. The fact that so many eminent men have found a subject of serious study in the language, history, and characteristics of the Gypsies, ought rather to serve as an incentive to those who are now following them in the same lines of research, with all the manifest advantages to be derived from the work of their precursors. For there is, fortunately, in addi tion to the veterans of the old Society, a strong and vigorous con tingent ready to prosecute these studies still further, and haply to solve more than one question that has hitherto only been guessed at. This new series of our Journal will presumably differ in some details from the earlier series. But whatever its leading features may prove to be, it begins its career under the most favourable auspices, and needs no fortune-teller to predict its success.

Jump into the mystical world of Western magic by reading The Living Fire, the Soul Power of the Universe by Jessie Rogers. The late 19th and early 20th Century saw a revival of Western mysticism, or occult, which drew on alchemy, naturalism, astrology and other sources of knowledge to develop an alternative to traditional religion. The Living Fire, the Soul Power of the Universe takes readers on a path to greater understanding of the universe and themselves. The first half of the book explains the theory of the universe. Fire is the life force of every living being and the nature of this fire is discussed and deconstructed. Rogers relies on the teachings of elders, Eastern religions, alchemists and others with forgotten wisdom to formulate his ideas. He notes that science is discovering evidence proving the claims that learned men of the Orient made thousands of years ago. Like many new age practitioners of the time, he embraces the teachings of the Orient, Hinduism and Buddhism, which becomes obvious in the second half of The Living Fire, the Soul Power of the Universe. The second half of the book is about harnessing the secret spiritual powers of man. Rogers explains that men should have the power to heal the sick, cast out devils and foresee future events. He discusses several laws and theories explaining how this is done, including the law of vibration, magnetism, astral fluid, Pranayama breath, and Mesmerism. There is a list of physical exercises designed to teach you how to control your Will, to develop personal magnetism, as well as tap your latent powers (like telepathy, trance sleep and psychometry). The final section contains exercises to teach you how to heal the sick and yourself. The Living Fire, the Soul Power of the Universe is an intriguing read for people who want to learn ancient wisdom about human potential. The breathing rituals and physical and mental exercises are unique, inviting the reader to judge the text on its own merits. Highly recommended.
