Thandie Newton
Swinging from Hollywood blockbusters to sensitive indie films, Thandie Newton brings thoughtfulness and delicate beauty to her work.



We've created entire value systems and a physical reality to support the worth of self. Look at the industry for self-image and the jobs it creates, the revenue it turns over. We'd be right in assuming that the self is an actual living thing. But it's not; it's a projection, which our clever brains create in order to cheat ourselves from the reality of death. But there is something that can give the self ultimate and infinite connection -- and that thing is oneness, our essence. The self's struggle for authenticity and definition will never end unless it's connected to its creator -- to you and to me. And that can happen with awareness -- awareness of the reality of oneness and the projection of self-hood. For a start, we can think about all the times when we do lose ourselves. It happens when I dance, when I'm acting. I'm earthed in my essence, and my self is suspended. In those moments, I'm connected to everything -- the ground, the air, the sounds, the energy from the audience. All my senses are alert and alive in much the same way as an infant might feel -- that feeling of oneness.
我们创造了整个价值系统,以及一个客观的现实,用以支持自我的价值。看看由个人形象带动的产业,还有它提供的工作,以及它创造的价值。我们可能会假设,这个自我是真实存在的。但我们错了;这只是一个投影,是由我们聪明的大脑创造出来的,来欺骗我们自己无需面对死亡的现实。 但总有一些事,能赋予自我终极无尽的联系,那就是同一性,我们的本源。自我对于真实性和定义的挣扎永远不会停止,除非自我能够与创造者相连——与你,与我。这和意识的觉醒一同存在,意识到同一性的现实,以及自我的投影。一开始,我们可以想想那些我们失去自我的时候,当我跳舞时,表演时。我根植于我的本源,我的自我被抑制了。在那些时刻,我与万物相连——大地,空气 声音,观众的能量。我的所有感官都是警觉和鲜活的,如同一个婴儿感受到的一般——那种同一性的感觉。
