Sentry isn't "clear of mind". Sentry suffers from three diagnosed illnesses: schizophrenia, agoraphobia and generalized anxiety disorder.
Death Seed Sentry made the statement, that he has been cured of the agoraphobic nightmare: http://i.imgur.com/e1OrL3J.jpg
... Which leads me to believe, that his time in the Sun served him as a shock therapy and now he does not suffer from agoraphobia anymore.
But Sentry still suffers from schizophrenia. A common symptom of schizophrenia are delusions of grandeur and I guess I don't have to post the many screenshots, where Sentry believes himself to be the protector and caretaker of humanity. He thinks way too highly of himself.
The Void (visual and auditory hallucinations, which become real) is there, because Sentry is schizophrenic and as for now (or at least implied by Rick Remender's hints) Sentry believes, that the Void left him and went to the White Hot Room.
In an interview Rick Remender said this about Death Seed Sentry.
"What happens to a resurrected Sentry, who doesn't have The Void in his head anymore?" Who is still this mentally ill Superman who's got powers of a thousand exploding suns, but instead of The Void taking up space in his head, it's a Death persona from a Celestial, from an Apocalypse?"
"In Sentry now, you've got someone who is basically a human being with the power of a thousand exploding suns, who is mentally ill, and instead of having this villainous Void in his head, now he's got a Death persona, which is screaming for him to move forward evolution."
The Agoraphobia was what really shackled Robert more than anything. Now that he has been as Enzeru shared "cured from the Agoraphobic nightmare". He is still Schizophrenic and most likely has G.A.D but the Death Seed acts as a light at the end of the tunnel type thing. He has a goal to put all of his power into.

"Why did the Void kiss the Sentry in SENTRY V2? Is Bob gay or something?"
No, he is not gay I mean, not that there is anything wrong with being gay, but he just isn't.
The idea behind the kiss is a fairly simple one, but before I explain it, here a little bit of additional information:
As I've mentioned it before in this thread, Sentry is heavily based on the character Miracleman and there something similar happened. Miracleman took his creator (I think?) into the sky, kissed him out of love and then killed him off: http://i.imgur.com/Mh2nVK9.jpg
While the Void is not Sentry's creator per se, there was a moment in Sentry comics, where Sentry did take the Professor (heavily involved in Sentry's creation) into the sky, where he blew up.
But this is the instance with the Void, where Void kissed the Sentry and told him, that he loved him: http://i.imgur.com/w6UnKYC.jpg
So why did that happen? As I've said it, it's simple:
The idea behind the Void at times (!) was, that he was doing the exact opposite of the Sentry. If the Sentry saved 150 people, the Void killed 150 people.
So during their last fight in SENTRY V2 (#8) Sentry got the better of the Void and threatened to kill him. Where the Sentry was full of hate towards the Void and had the intention to kill him, the Void was going through the exact opposite, telling the Sentry that he loved him and tried showing it with a kiss. Unfortunately for him, it did him no good and the Sentry tossed him into the Sun, like he did it with so many other things.

Brian Michael Bendis talks about Sentry's power set:
Bendis: "We've now unveiled all of our cards - about who the Sentry is and what his powers are. We've unveiled in Dark Avengers #12 that the Sentry, on top of his powers, has powers like the Molecule Man. He actually has the ability to craft / to form a reality from a molecular level. And that's where his powers have come from. [...] And there is no limit to the power level that he has."
Men...i really have to say. This thread is beautiful to The Sentry's name. Thanks to Enzeru and even Angry Scott for keeping this thread alive for an almost unknown but very great character. Makes me so happy that this thread is flourishing
