In 1 Peter 2:1 when it talks about ''laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings'' the Greek word there for ''laying aside'' is ''apotithemi'' which can mean ''to make a way'' as in finding a way when there seems to not be one. And it also can mean ''to make out of'', to create from the hypocrisies, guile, envies, evil speakings and so forth. That is, to make good out of them or for good out of them. Also to ''make for one's use'', or for one's advantage in the truth - the lifestyle, defense or culmination thereof; or to ''lay aside for a later time'', which can represent wisdom of prevention or invention or discovery. And it can also mean to ''lay on'' or ''combine''. We can learn from these things and from people's hypocrisies and lies to better ourselves! And it also can mean to ''establish'' or to ''fit, fix or place in'' - to relativize those things into truth or for truth. - Joshua Aaron Guillory

However, when it comes to many of these enlightened or so-called enlightened teachers, I don't totally agree with their philosophies when it comes to the individual state of affairs. We all are where we wanted or chose to be according to fate, but I do not believe you are where you are totally due to your choice as the present experiencer [man] of fate, as the ignorant yet knowledgeable man. I believe you are supposed to be where you are to learn things about life and to relate to yourself or your own life as well as the lives of others. Others are to learn from you and of you in some way for their own growth or experience! I don't believe totally or in every degree this whole guilt conscious thing! That people are where they are even when they desire to get out of their situation. You're where you are to learn and grow and relate. My life is perfect and I will get into better or more favorable conditions for my life and growth as a spiritual person. - Joshua Aaron Guillory
