This concept conveys an attitude or a style that is crucial for thrivability.

The trickster, sometimes expressed in the being of a coyote or a raven, is the character that reminds us not to take ourselves too seriously or we will miss something important. Tricksters thrive when navigating paradoxes.

They act as if what they do matters, all the while laughing at the notion that it does. Thus the trickster teaches us that we can act with care, and in earnest, but also not get high on ourselves for what we do.
