Per the Nicene Creed:
[The Holy Spirit] proceeds from the Father and the Son.
Per the Holy Bible:
But I will send you the Advocate—the Spirit of truth. He will come to you from the Father and will testify all about me.

Truth is...It seems reasonable to me to believe that humans have not invented the Holy Spirit and that He is a real aspect of the Triune God. I mean, why would anyone make up something as hard to understand as this?
