    I don't know if this means anything at all.  However, I searched for "the grandest foal ben" in Google and a forum in which I shared that poem on hubpages came up as the first link.  Sure enough, I clicked on the link, scrolled down and there I was.  The second listing was my sharing the poem to another grieving pet owner.  Whatever it means, I'm excited.  I started my day out sadly because the unexpected and tragic loss of my beautiful boy is coming up this weekend so everyday is filled with a looming "dread" of this coming Sunday.  This was very exciting!!!  Maybe it means nothing to others but it means the world to me.

    If you can send me some strength that'd be awesome as well.  Thanks all for listening/reading/looking.

    Just a curious question. Who on earth is going to search for the phrase "the grandest foul ben" except perhaps, you?

      Its really unfortunate that you are unable to share in the happiness of others...really, I feel sad for you.

        Perhaps its because you need to crush the happiness of others to feel better about yourself.  Sad, sad, sad place to be.  Been there, sugar, and it isn't a fun place to be.

            There was a huge map of a vast desert that nobody visits. There stood a Palm tree in the middle, lonely and proud.

    The bubble grows larger and larger and it doesn't know that it has little strength of its own and that will burst at the slightest whiff of air. But it feels too proud about it!

    Someone smeared his face with coal tar and asked a passer-by "Am I not beautiful?" The good-hearted said "Yes" and went away, chuckling.

    The level-headed showed a mirror and said "see for yourself".

    IF you love delusion, be happy with what good-heated said.
    If you want to learn and grow, listen to what the level-headed says.

        Why are you so incapable of just saying "hey good for you" instead of spewing psycho-babble.  If you are unaware of what physo-babble is....reread your previous posts.  Please understand that I AM not the one who is looking like an idiot here.......trust me.....

    Okay. Let me end the day with this short story of Ramana Maharshi.

    Two travellers were sleeping in a Lodge. One, in his dream saw a thief taking his wallet and running away. He woke up crying "thief, thief.... Catch Him!....."

    His co-traveller was awake. He said "Come on, it's all a dream!"

    But the former could not yet come to his senses. He cried; "What nonsense! How hearless you are! Why don't you run and catch the thief instead of advising me, "It's all dream?"

    Good night. Please. I have no ill will against you. Definitely.

    Are you kidding?  I love it when I show up in Google for weird phrases!  It's a funny little thrill.  Do I try to boost my SEO for non-weird phrases?  Sure!  But it's fun to see the odd stuff show up there, too.

  10. C.V.Rajan profile image60
    C.V.Rajanposted 9 years ago

    Again, to be practical, pragmatic and realistic, it only shows google's wonderful efficiency in fishing out even odd phrases from billions of content. It has nothing to do with our own success or popularity.

    If I put C.V.Rajan in google search, atleast 3 to 4 pages will come with links to my profile pages and articles. That does not meke me a most sought after author, nor make me world famous! Even my next door neighbor will not know me! It is simply because, no one else, perhaps except me, will ever search for C.V.Rajan. Even my wife! (Because C.V.Rajan is my pen name).

    Ecept for giving us a false sense of pride, it has no significance, unless and untill the search phrase has some importance and relevance to the information seeker.

      There are harsh and unnecessary lessons as well as kind, growth promoting lessons.

      I'm a bit prone to being harsh myself, so I am in no position to judge.

      Oh and then jealously gets you no where.  Your comments say more about you than me.  so again, <snipped>.

        Hi Stimp,

        It has dawned to me very clearly that my uncalled-for comment made 6 years ago (and its sequel of exchanges at that time) has hurt you deeply and that hurt is still alive as you visit this page after a lapse of 6 years.

        It is an eye-opener for the sarcastic person by birth that I am. There is a Sanskrit verse that I knew of since long ago but I had never tried to put it into practice in my life, because of my obsession with stating the cold truth in a blunt way. It says:
        " Speak the truth
          Speak soothingly
          If the truth is not really soothing,
          Better speak soothingly, not the truth"

        My spiritual leanings could not so far help me put this gem of advice in my life so far. At least, let me make a start with you right now.

        I sincerely seek your apologies for emotionally hurting you with my unwarranted comments loaded with sarcasm.

        C.V.Rajan

    Yes, because I thought Google would search through the internet and pull up any page that had [what was it?] the grandest foal ben and would present all pages with it on it. Unfortunately, this doesn't mean that the page is popular, it's more like reading the table of contents in a book. -- I haven't googled it yet, but my assumption it's about a horse named Ben. Am I right?

    1. Marisa Wright profile image95
      Marisa Wrightposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      That's exactly right.  If you type a Hub's title into Google, Google will always try to find the exact match if it can.   If no one else has written an article with that title, then yours will come up as the very first result. 

      The thing is, that means nothing, except that people who know the title can find the Hub.

    I am happy you have found some happiness in your work,  sad for your lost love. But always remember life may be short in this world , but it is not the end just because someone dies in God’s book, notice in your bible these important words.

    New World Translation
    Ho 13:14 From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them. Where are your stings, O Death? Where is your destructiveness, O Grave? Compassion will be concealed from my eyes.

    Isa 26:19 “Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.

    Re 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead in it, and death and the Grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.

    Our human births was never impossible,  so the return of life would not be impossible either as written. 

    But they will return when the earth is clean and prepared for the resurrection.
    You can have assurance this is a promise of God's word spoken

    at 2Pe 3:13 But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.
