Not necessarily. It depends if the energy exchange is symbiotic and not parasitic. There are some people out there who are able to suck energy from people. My old aikijitsu teacher was good at it. You have to give and recieve energy freely.
Would that be the ideal state, to be in harmony with the universe? Is it possible? Do you think aikido can bring you to this state?
I don't know if it would be ideal, but it would be pretty nice. I think aikido can help bring you to this state, but I feel you might need some other esoteric (Taoism, Wicca, etc...) to help.
Just my opinion.
