Calm as an Effect or an End-all?

K, still thinking about this one.

I have always perceived a calm state of being an an effect of work, not as a be-all, end-all.

Even in various meditation practices, you have to work fairly hard to get your body and mind into a state of calm, ie correct your breathing, get the right body posture, work, work, then, as you get everything in line, you achieve the calm.

I wonder if that holds water that calm is an effect?
