I'm not entirely sure that I understand your question...
If your question is "How can I connect a Thunderbolt display to my MacBook Pro?", then the answer is that you have to have a MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt port. Using a Thunderbolt cable, connect one end of the cable to the monitor (usually this plugs into the bottom of the monitor) and plug the other end of the cable into the Thunderbolt port on your MacBook Pro.
If your MacBook Pro doesn't have a Thunderbolt port, then unfortunately you cannot connect a Thunderbolt display to your MacBook.
If you tell me which MacBook Pro you have, I can tell you if your MacBook has a Thunderbolt port. To look up which MacBook you have, click the "Apple" logo on the top, left hand corner of your screen. Next, click "About This Mac". Next, click "More Info...". This screen should show a picture of a MacBook on the left and have text on the right. At the top of the text on the right, the model of your MacBook Pro will be listed. For instance, on my computer it says:
Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013
Hope this helps!
