You can see the rebelliousness of Zen

Every religion is concerned that you should be good , you should not be bad, you should be respectable , you should not be condemned by society .You should not lose your good repute even if you have to be a hypocrite. Just be good , even though the good is not arising on its own , but you are forcing it .

It is the greatness of Zen: Don't have any thoughts about good or bad . Be absolutely a witness , and while you are just a witness , whatever happens through you is bound to be good .The whole world may condemn it ; it does not matter .You have to listen only to your own heart .
