How can we throw away all perceptions? We need to stop thinking to have calm mind. All words, notions, ideas, thoughts, beliefs, views...etc are obstacles for calm mind because they cause separation or discrimination. We need to burn away all of them for non-separation, or inclusiveness. For that, we need to transform ourselves from ego (separate self) to true self (non-separate self). Non-separate self can accept all without discrimination unconditionally. The object is not necessary for breathing, walking and smiling, for an example. So, the extinction of all perceptions is possible through concentration on breathing, walking and smiling. Still water can reflect as they are because it is calm and peaceful.
