In Zen, it is said right view is no view.

This 'view' thing means taking a situation, filtering it through one's mind and putting a personal spin on it. In other words, make stuff up. Then you can't see what is actually going on -- only a limited interpretation of it. The two will inevitably clash and cause suffering.

Zen is to perceive everything as it is, sans adding or subtracting. No expectations and no disagreements with others.

Suffering will disappear.
