According to Poke, this led him to the realization that all things and people are connected, and that, “if we work together, we can create anything to make our existence so much nicer.”

Many philosophers, scientists and everyday people have devoted their lives to discovering the meaning of life, and exhausted themselves in the search for God. Author Darrell H. Poke, on the other hand, was a self-proclaimed “dyed-in-the-wool atheist” for most of his life. Growing up in Latrobe and working within the harsh mining environment of Australia, with a limited educational background, he seemed an unlikely candidate for a spiritual awakening. This would all change in the blink of an eye, an experience he shares with readers in his new book, “It Began with a Stubby: A Spiritual Awakening, Aussie Style” (published by Balboa Press).

Poke’s spiritual awakening began in the unlikely setting of a bar.

“I was helping a friend appreciate what he was paying for his drink was a pittance compared to what it cost to create it; we could find no beginning or end to the process,” Poke writes.

According to Poke, this led him to the realization that all things and people are connected, and that, “if we work together, we can create anything to make our existence so much nicer.”

Poke’s revelations may range from the idea that all people are connected to the idea that God exists in fragments in all human beings, but they all have one thing in common: togetherness. Throughout his book, Poke stresses the importance of the idea that all people are connected, and that realizing this can allow for the success of the human race as a whole.

Poke hopes that his use of everyday language and his rough-and-tumble upbringing will make his work more relatable to all audiences, allowing his message of “togetherness” to reach as many people as possible.
