How do people deal with and decrease the confusion and suffering that arises in life? How can someone really attain the lasting, stable happiness all people seek?

“What The Hell Is Going On?” The Question, Our Secrets, Some Answers”, WHIGO, (Expansion, Dec. 2016) by M.L. lauri,, is a fresh, honest, and easy approach to self-help. “WHIGO is different from other self-help books in that it doesn’t send the message that we are broken people who need to be fixed. Rather, WHIGO encourages understanding and compassion of ourselves as a means to finding peace and happiness in our lives. WHIGO encourages us to see our lives and emotions through a lens of honesty so that we can live contentedly with all the experiences that come with being fully human. This is a must read book,” reviews V. Gallegos, LCSW.

This book seeks to help people understand what causes their confusion and suffering, what people all share as human beings, and how to attain the lasting, stable happiness all people seek through understanding the obstacles to happiness and the path and methods to overcome these obstacles.

OUR SECRETS: What are the experiences all people share as humans? Why is it that people keep their own experiences secret? The idea is to make these secrets, shared human experiences, known so that they are secrets no more. By doing this any feelings of being alone and isolated can be decreased.

SOME ANSWERS: Can people find the lasting, stable happiness they all seek? How can this be attained? What are the obstacles that get in the way of attaining a lasting, stable happiness, and how can people overcome them?

Kirkus Reviews calls WHIGO “A heartfelt, thoughtfully constructed read that explores practical, self-driven solutions to common challenges and habits.”

The renowned Yangsi Rinpoche, president of Maitripa College, reviewed, “The experience of deep, personal loss at the tender age of eleven, set M.L. lauri on an inner quest which began with ‘Why.’ In WHIGO, M.L. lauri shares her life’s ‘secrets’ only brought to light though an acute inner awareness of the experiences of life. These poignant ‘secrets’ of our common human condition are a source of compassion and kindness for our self and others. The ‘secrets’ reveal we are all in the same boat without exception! Through her life’s journey and Buddhist inspirations along the way, M.L. lauri shares some answers, urging and hoping for all of us to embark on an inner rather than outer journey to find for our self, the answers to overcome suffering, and find stable happiness. This is her hope and my prayer and aspiration for all who set eyes on M.L. lauri’s gift of the heart.”     

The psychology profession agrees. Ann Kane, MA, psychotherapist, wrote, “I highly recommend this book for anyone who is questioning and wanting answers.” Psychiatric/Mental Health RN M. Fontaine wrote, “I would highly encourage anyone willing to take an honest look inside themselves, to read WHIGO as they move through their experience, and bring with them a compelling partner along their road to greater fulfillment, happiness, and peace.” Psychiatric/Mental Health RN N. Filipovic wrote, “This book puts light on drowning societal behaviors and expectations and redirects the reader to a lighter perspective using the author’s vast life experience, multi-cultural exposure, own self-awakening, and continuous strive to find the secrets to true happiness.”
