Anonymous tithing is a wonderful way to increase not only joy in your own life but also a sense of fulfillment. It makes you think, "I do have enough to give, to keep, to spend, to share, to save. All is well." It's important that your way of giving back is done anonymously so you can keep your ego out of it. The key to tithing is to give wherever your soul was nourished that week. If a friend really helped you out, anonymously mail her a gift certificate to her favorite restaurant. If you got a really good massage, send the massage therapist a nice gift or an extra tip. If a drive thru worker has a great smile, give him a tip and tell him to keep up the good work. You get the idea. This is different from random acts of kindness. There's nothing random about this exercise. Anonymous tithing makes you think about where your soul was fed that week, about where in your week did you feel grateful, uplifted, and then deciding to return this great feeling and keep is going. Try this for a month and you'll see a positive difference in your life.
